No. News to me in the UK. Sounds like a hoax. If so, bad taste.

John;
No, I didn't know about it, but I don't buy it. Sounds like a hoax in very bad taste. Besides, who would go out with a guy nicknamed "otter."

OK>... not real (as some guessed).

This is the "backstory" for a particular scene in the (might I say "classic") movie "Animal House". It is part of the ploy used by a bunch of guys to go to a private girl's college and pick up some ladies using a "sympathy approach". The main character, "Otter", walks in and asks the dorm security monitor get his fiance' (Fawn). Of couse unbeknownst to the poor hapless Otter, Fawn has just died in the afroementioned pottery kiln accident. Which the friends of Fawn then explain to him.

See the actual movie for the details.
