My journalism professor told me the cover up is always a bigger story than the crime.
If the worker would have just admitted their mistake, this doesn’t become a story, instead we have this…
At first, locals thought Tech XX (pictured above) had gone missing and put out a call for any info people might have as to his whereabouts. Today, though, Louisiana Tech released a statement saying Tech XX had died and that the Sexton Animal Health Center of Ruston, Louisiana, has an immediate opening for a animal care specialist.
Statement re: Tech XX
Regretfully, I learned this morning that through negligence of an employee, Tech XX was left outside too long on Sunday evening and passed away from a heat stroke. That employee unfortunately chose to handle it the wrong way and attempted to cover it up. Due to this negligence, the employee is no longer employed by Sexton Animal Health Center.
RIP Tech XX, hope you are enjoying that big doggie bone in the sky.
