MIDDLETOWN, Conn. – Cornell University professor Stephen Morgan thought it was bad enough that he shares the name of a man accused of murder.
But then an assistant showed him a Web site with a photo supposedly of the suspect. What he saw was a decade-old picture of himself.
The sociology professor's photo was posted on Wesleyan University's Web site along with details of Wednesday's fatal shooting of 21-year-old Johanna Justin-Jinich. The image was then broadcast nationally.
Wesleyan says it got the photo from police. Police say they never released the image.
Morgan thinks the photo was taken for his Massachusetts driver's license when he was a Harvard University graduate student. Wesleyan eventually replaced the photo.
