Angelo State University holds an annual "Rambunctious Week" Welcome Back Bash before the fall classes begin. Cantu's alias "DJ Shots" is listed as the host of the event. Following the Bash, one of the victims began “following Cantu on Instagram and Snapchat where they began having conversations,” according to the affidavit.
