A food technology student threw himself under the wheels of a passenger train after an extreme diet he found on the internet caused his health to deteriorate.

Will Mathews, 22, ate only vegetables and fruit after becoming ‘fixated’ with recipes free from carbohydrates and protein he downloaded from a US website. 

The Manchester Metropolitan University student, a former pescatarian, began taking health supplements to compensate but he became convinced he had issues with his bones and he started to lose his hair.

His mental state deteriorated amid fears he was struggling with his degree.

Mr Mathews, from Stockport, Greater Manchester, stepped into a path of the Birmingham to Manchester train as it was travelling through Levenshulme on October 8 2017.

He suffered multiple injuries and died at the scene.

An inquest was told Mr Mathews had enjoyed his food as a youngster but his health deteriorated after he enrolled at university.

His father Christopher Mathews told the Manchester inquest: ‘He was clearly struggling with his studies but it was the way he was constantly referring to the problems with his physical illness and his diet.

‘You could see he wasn’t looking after himself and was dropping out of the university system. He was always following a very strict diet eating only vegetables and fruit and he had been following this for some time, it started in December 2016.

‘He had this fixation with this diet and it got worse and worse and eventually he was taking supplements and all sorts of things. It appeared this diet was more from the internet and social media and was taking information from American websites.

‘I did ask him where he got all this from, he was quite assertive that he believed this information to be true, but it was from oddball websites and books.

‘We were very, very concerned about his well being, not so much his mood, more his irrational behaviour, he was sleeping until the afternoon, and when he was talking it was nonsensical.

‘He believed he had physical problems with his bones and this culminated in a meeting with his GP. The main thing was the diet. I requested a meeting to see if any counselling could be offered but it wasn’t available.

‘I funded private counselling and he attended three sessions, but he wasn’t responding to that and it was stopped. 

‘On 29th September 2017 he was admitted to hospital and I met him for lunch and he looked like he had gone insane.

‘He was completely out of reality, he was in his own little bubble. He was completely exhausted he couldn’t focus. He kept saying on many occasions he was going die and that his disease was consuming him physical and mentally. 

‘He did say to me occasionally “I have just had enough, I want to end things”, but these were fleeting comments, he didn’t say how or when.’

Mr Mathews’ mother Sylvia Duncan, a nurse said: ‘He was always a very friendly little boy and when he was growing up he really enjoyed his food, and there was one point when I was going to London to see my sister and brother in law when he declared he was going pescatarian.

‘He once told me “I want to make sure everybody’s healthy and I want to open my own enterprise, I want everybody to know about healthy eating”. He was never a fussy eater, he ate everything and enjoyed cooking.

‘He started the pescatarian diet where he cut out just meat, then he started to cut out certain types of food including carbohydrates and protein. He kept saying: “I don’t need protein I have been told I don’t need it”.

‘I noticed he was losing weight, he was having to eat more frequently as he wasn’t taking in anything of substance. He was coming up with arguments from people he met online and he was eating just greens and fruit which he mashed it up.

‘As I am a nurse I understand nutrition but he was telling me people who had written books which he purchased told him to get better you had to deteriorate a little bit first.

‘I tried to say that it doesn’t make any sense but he was adamant that they knew what they were talking about. 

‘I think this diet was linked to his knowledge of food. But I think he accessed the wrong information from Google which sent him in the wrong direction.

‘I remember him coming home and showing me his knees and he said there was something wrong and I said it was because of his weight loss because of the diet he had been following.  

The inquest heard Mr Mathews was admitted to the Norbury Ward at Stepping Hill Hospital in September 2017 after further concerns about his mental condition

‘He started to suffer with anxiety and I remember he said he was losing a couple of his dreadlocks. He said he was looking it up online and he said it was because he was following this diet incorrectly.

‘I said it was because of the diet but he said he had spoken to some woman in America and she told him it was because he wasn’t following this diet correctly. He said he was worried if he didn’t get back on track something was going to happen.

‘His GP referred him to the early intervention team and prescribed anti anxiety medication and sleep medication.’

The inquest heard Mr Mathews was admitted to the Norbury Ward at Stepping Hill Hospital in September 2017 after further concerns about his mental condition. 

He died after buying supplements from a Holland and Barrrett store during a period of leave.

Leanne Callan of British Transport Police said: ‘Officers attended the ward at Stepping Hill and recovered a laptop and sent it to the high tech crime unit in London. I am aware the family did have concerns regarding access to websites and the dark web and things like that.

‘The interrogation unit were asked to check if William had been accessing any dark web material but there was no such usage of the dark web.

‘They were able to access a number of word documents. There were three documents of interest, one called “final note”, one called “suicide note” and a third called “the way”. All were created on various dates in September, the last document was “the way”, which was modified on 04/10 at 9.23am. 

‘These were the three documents which were deemed to be critical in the investigation.

‘From the evidence on the CCTV and the train driver’s statement, we believe that William deliberately entered the tracks on his own, there was no third party involvement, and deliberately placed himself in front of the train.’

Park Hill #parent says #school #laptop was used for #inappropriate #relationship with #student

A metro school district is making big changes in cybersecurity. It comes after a parent says things got so bad for her daughter, she was forced to pull her child out of school and move her out of state.

41 Action News sat down with a concerned mother who wished to remain anonymous. Her daughter once attended the Park Hill School District.

She said the problems began shortly after her daughter was issued a laptop by the district. She said her daughter then set up a Facebook account with her school email address, on her school laptop.

“This Facebook account was used by her boyfriend to help groom her for an inappropriate, sexual relationship,” said the mother. “Over a 6-week period, there’s 650 printable pages of him talking to her and trying to teach her about bondage relationships.”

The mother said her daughter’s personality changed abruptly and feels the inappropriate relationship would’ve been caught sooner if district leaders put more safeguards on those laptops.

“She got physically violent with me one time. If they’re searching for guns, violence, porn, then someone should be alerted to this. Whether it’s inside the school or not.

FBI #Charges 22-Year-Old #Student for #Hacking System to Change #Grades

A former student at the University of Iowa was arrested on computer-hacking charges for accessing copies of exams in advance, and altering grades for himself and his classmates.

Chemistry major and wrestler Trevor Graves, 22, allegedly plugged keyloggers into university computers in classrooms and labs, allowing him to see whatever his professors typed, including their credentials to the university’s grading system.

In a criminal complaint submitted to an Iowa district court, the FBI claims Graves had access to the school’s grading system, Iowa Courses Online (ICON), for nearly 21 months – between March 2015 and December 2016.

During this time, Graves was able to modify grades more than 90 times on tests, quizzes and homework assignments for himself and at least five other students.

One of Graves’ professors first reported the incident to campus IT security officials after noticing changes in his assignments and quiz scores without her authorization.

An investigation led to a search of his off-campus apartment where authorities seized keyloggers, cellphones and thumb drives that contained copies of the stolen exams.

Grades were allegedly changed for a number of classes, including courses in business, engineering and chemistry.

According to the New York Times, Graves was arrested in Denver last Tuesday and released on bond pending an initial court appearance in Iowa two days later.

The Colorado native is charged with “intentionally accessing a computer without authorization and exceeding authorized access to obtain information, and knowingly transmitting a computer program to cause damage.”

Court documents state the IT expenses associated with the internal investigation, response to the breach and remedial steps to enhance IT security will cost the university roughly $68,000.

Hacker Holds #University for #Ransom, #Threatens to Dump #Student Info

Hacker Holds #University for #Ransom, #Threatens to Dump #Student Info

A hacker is trying to extort a Canadian university, threatening to dump student information unless university top brass pay 30,000 CAD (23,000 USD).

The extortion attempt’s victim is the University of Fraser Valley (UFV), a Canadian university located in the town of Abbotsford, south-east of Vancouver.

Based on the currently available information, a hacker or hacker group breached the university’s network from where it gathered information such as names, email addresses, phone numbers, physical addresses, grades information, some instances, limited financial details, and possibly more.

Hacker circulated personal data of 29 UFV students

The time of the intrusion is unknown, but over the last weekend, the hacker sent an email to UFV students with the personal information of 29 UVF students.

The same email also contained a ransom demand of 30,000 CAD (23,000 USD). The hacker gave UFV officials 48 hours to pay, or he’d release more info.

The University came clean on Monday and admitted the breach in series of four security alerts sent over the course of the week.

“The students directly affected have been contacted and UFV is working with them to take steps to secure their privacy and personal information,” a UFV spokesperson said.

University shuts down email system

On Wednesday, UFV shut down its email system until November 6, in an attempt to prevent the proliferation of other emails containing data of other students.

The hacker’s point of entry and the number of compromised systems are currently unknown. The University is still investigating the breach, together with Abbotsford police.

The deadline has passed, but it’s unclear if the University paid the ransom demand.

In mid-September, a hacker group known as TheDarkOverlord (TDO) tried to extort schools in the US state of Montana. The hacker’s extortion attempts failed, even after he made bomb threats against the school and physical violence against students.

Bleeping Computer reached out to the hacker group through an intermediary and TDO denied it was behind this recent extortion attempt.

Student expelled for changing grades using keylogger

Under normal situations, a student wanting higher grades would mean extra effort and hard work and that’s usually a good thing. In this student’s case however, the school decided that its a bad thing when the hard work leads a student to hack into his school’s computer systems.

Greed did him in

The incident was reported in Kansas University (KU) where the student reportedly logged into the school’s systems and changed his grades from an F to an A. The student got the credentials needed to access the system by using a physical key-logger and installing it in one of the systems in the lecture halls.

The key-logger was a simple one, available for purchase online for as little as $20. Various KU professors while speaking to local news media said that the hack was only noticed because the student got too greedy with his grades. The professors also noted that the hack occurred last spring and was only noticed at the beginning of the new school year that too by chance. The teachers are hopeful that the University files a police complaint regarding this incident as a warning for any other student getting the same idea. This student’s name hasn’t been disclosed but he has been expelled for his actions.

Not a unique case

This isn’t the first reported case of students hacking into their school’s system to change grades. A Louisiana high school suspended 45 students at one stretch for hacking into the school’s computer systems to change their grades. Similar incidents have also been reported across the globe , most popular being one in Haifa, Israel where another student was expelled from The Technion Institute of Technology for hacking into his professor’s emails seeking any information that could be used to boost his grades.
