Investigators believe that a former student at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Mo., not only knowingly exposed over 30 sexual partners to HIV but also secretly taped their encounters, reports the Huffington Post.

Police found 32 videos on Michael Johnson’s laptop of the 21-year-old having unprotected sex with at least 31 people over a span of four months. They believe Johnson’s partners were unaware that they were being filmed and that Johnson was HIV-positive. Prosecutor Tim Lohmar told KMOV that the majority of the videos were taped inside Johnson’s dorm room.

Investigators are urging Johnson’s partners to come forward to the St. Charles Detective Bureau in the interest of public safety. Johnson was first arrested and charged with knowingly exposing a partner to HIV in October. After that, four more partners came to the police in November. Johnson was charged with four more felonies as a result.

Johnson had an active life on social media, using the pseudonym “Tiger Mandingo” and posting shirtless selfies on his Instagram and Facebook. Even on the day before his arrest, Johnson wrote that he had “missed [sic] up big time,” reports the Riverfront Times.

He also asked his fans to come support him at his college wrestling matches. Johnson was expelled after his arrest.
