Trent Lehrkamp, a 19-year-old from Brunswick, Georgia, experienced a horrific hazing incident involving minors last week on March 21.
Reports indicate that Lehrkamp was forced to drink vodka and take mushrooms before he was tied to a chair, sprayed with urine, and covered with spray paint.
After the incident, he was dropped off at a local hospital, where he ended up on a ventilator in the ICU, where he remains and is now in stable condition. He continues to battle a lung infection.
A GoFundMe page states, “He spent Tuesday night with a group of people who he thought were his friends. They picked him up from his house, and he expected to have a casual night with his friends. Trent wouldn’t know until it was too late that these were not friends, but vile and abusive perpetrators who would go on to torture, humiliate, and assault him in inhumane, terrifying ways for hours.”
The Glynn County Police Department has since responded to the incident and found that some of the teenagers involved were from Glynn Academy High School. According to reports, Lehrkamp is on the autism spectrum.
In response, there has been a large amount of shock and outrage. A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to raise money for his medical bills and legal fees.
