Yale Professor Who Died In Jail Cell Reportedly Linked To New Haven Male Escort Service

Yale University English professor who mysteriously diedin a New Haven police jail cell last weekend may have been
connected to a local male escort service, according to the New Haven Register.

The personal phone number of the professor, Samuel See, was reportedly listed advertising Ryan Cochran Escort Services in New Haven. As The Register reports:

The website Ryan Cochran Escort Services includes the same phone number listed on an order of protection filed against See in September. A profile photo on the Ryan Cochran Escort Service website matches the profile photograph on a LinkedIn account purporting to be See’s. The website lists Cochran’s home city as New Haven. A Facebook page with pictures resembling See and listed under the name Ryan Cochran includes See’s home address.

The Register was unable to confirm what kind of connection — if any — See had to Ryan Cochran Escort Services.

See’s death gained attention after he passed away last weekend in a NHPD jail cell after sustaining minor injuries in a domestic dispute with his estranged partner. It remains unclear as to why the rising academic suddenly died, and there is an active investigation into See’s cause of death.

Below is a screenshot of See’s LinkedIn profile — which reportedly uses the same profile picture as the Ryan Cochran Escort Services website. The Ryan Cochran Facebook account [link includes NSFW images] includes See’s reported address.
