ATLANTA (CBS46)One week ago he was found badly bruised, but what happened the night a Georgia Tech student went missing after an off campus party?

CBS46 Investigative Reporter Karyn Greer has uncovered disturbing new details about the student’s disappearance.

Hubert, a 24-year-old aerospace engineering student mysteriously disappeared after attending a sorority party at The Foundry at Puritan Mill on October 16.

After a frantic search by friends and family, using cellphone tracking technology, Hubert was found two days later about four miles away, bloodied and face down in a ditch at DeKalb and Arizona avenues. His family insisted Hubert was on a MARTA train that night.

“He got mugged. He left the party and we think he said somebody mugged him. They ripped all his clothes and his wallet and watch and phone out left him for dead,” said Diane Hubert at the time her son was found.

MARTA and Atlanta police confirmed Hubert was not riding MARTA that evening.

A source told CBS46 Hubert, whose nickname is reportedly 007, jumped off a bridge — like James Bond in the opening scene of Skyfall– onto a moving train, believed to be a CSX train.

Apparently the entire incident was captured on surveillance video which is now in the hands of police.

Yeah, this was one of those stories that stunk like shit when it first came out, but my hands were tied. What was I gonna do, say hey that story is ridiculous, you’re a liar…as he’s lying there fighting for his life, with no evidence to back it up? All I could do was say “seems kind of suspicious” and wait for the facts to come out. But let’s just say this story makes a whollleeee lot more sense than a bunch of homeless people just randomly jumping him and leaving him next to train tracks all weekend. Eagerly anticipating that surveillance video.


Can’t say I blame him for the stunt that much though. I mean his nickname is 007. What the hell do you expect him to do when he sees a passing train…NOT recreate the opening scene of Skyfall?

No word yet on if a motorcycle was used. Stay tuned.
