From the Dayton Daily News:
More than $94,800 is missing or was illegally spent by employees of Wright State University’s Boonshoft School of Medicine through personal purchases, duplicate or fictitious claims for cash or gift cards for medical study participants and in petty cash withdrawals, according to a state audit released Thursday.
Most of the that money was taken by employees working on federal studies of drug use among young adults and on federally funded projects addressing substance abuse, HIV/AIDs testing and treatment, and other areas, according to the audit.

Norman Eckel was frustrated. By the winter of 2005, he’d been teaching business classes at Bowling Green State University for 26 years and felt that students “had gotten worse and worse” over the years, according to court records.
So when a student walked into his 11:30 a.m. accounting class 15 minutes before the hour-long class was to end, you might say Eckel flipped. From court records:
[Eckel] then turned to the rest of the class, pointed his finger like a gun, put it to his own head, said “duh,” and then said no, he should “shoot you guys.” [Eckel] continued, telling the class he should shoot the whole class with his AK-47, and “two clips ought to do it.”
Some students laughed. Some didn’t.
