UNC professor’s Argentinian odyssey

Looks as though septuagenarian UNC physics professor Paul Frampton went to Argentina not in search of cocaine, but…..

Frampton was arrested Jan. 23 at the international airport in Buenos Aires after the drugs were found hidden in the lining of a piece of his checked luggage as he was trying to fly back to North Carolina.

Frampton, who is 68, said he was duped into carrying the otherwise empty suitcase after flying to South America for what he thought would be a meeting with a internationally known bikini model who he thought he had met on the Internet. He said that after arriving he never actually saw the woman, and was instead asked by a man who presented himself as an intermediary to transport the suitcase.

Never mind the present circumstances — Frampton says he deserves a pay raise.
