Oregon- A 24 year-old student was found dead Saturday morning in a Portland area cabin according to local police. Sebastian Hook of Camas, Ore, was found overcome by malnutrition with an Iphone 7 in his hand. Authorities say that the phone was opened to the popular “Learn to Fish” game published by EA Sports.
The free-to-play game promises to teach a man to fish, a skill that could have saved Hook’s life. “The tragic thing is that he was so close to the final level”, states investigator William ‘Billy’ Klub, “he could have paid $9.99 to open the “Tackle Box” and learn instantly, but instead he tried to grind it out. He just needed to learn how to take the virtual bait”
Hook’s cabin is just 40 yards from Lacamas Lake. His body was discovered next to a fishing pole, license, and a cooler of bait.
