Useful information on Elwood Hoffman
* Student who roomed with Casey Hughes.
Elwood, college roommate and friend of Casey Hughes, had a front-row seat to the online gambling situation that got so out of hand with Casey. Casey's addiction to online poker got him in such money trouble he ended up stealing bonds from Lisa's safe (bonds that Barbara had given Will & Gwen) and gave them to Elwood to pay off his dad so he wouldn't tell Tom and Margo about what was going on.
After Casey went to jail, not much was heard from Elwood until Cheri Love came to town. She needed a college kid with computer skills to help her with her plan to get revenge on Dusty Donovan and Alison Stewart. His ego sufficiently stroked by the flirtatios Cheri, Elwood was all too happy to help out. He hacked into Dusty's email account and sent the naughty video of Dusty and Alison to pretty much everyone in town.
When Casey Hughes returned to town, Elwood stole documents from Oakdale U and tried to frame him. Casey caught on and Elwood was caught and sent to jail.

At the diner, Ellwood asks Luke where he gets off breaking into his dorm room. Luke boasts he knows Ellwood is dealing drugs. Ellwood wonders why they locked up Casey instead of him if that is true. Luke says it is all a cover and the police are after him. As Ellwood runs away, Noah wonders why Luke told him all that, but Luke thinks they now get a confession. Noah is scared that Luke is going to get himself into trouble again.

At Java Kevin, Luke and Noah talk about the death. They tell Kevin their thoughts about Elwood's involvement. Then Elwood walks in and Luke shoves him up against a wall! Elwood says he is innocent and Luke is crazy. After he leaves the guys wonder how they can make Elwood pay; Kevin says Elwood is in the dorm room across from his and offers to watch Elwood. He leaves. Luke says it's time to move their investigation to the next level – by breaking into Elwood's dorm room! Noah doesn't like the idea but Luke says they have no choice. Noah leaves for class; Luke decides to snoop through Elwood's room alone.
Luke gets to Elwood's dorm and listens at the door until he is sure the room is empty. Then he breaks in. He searches through drawers and then the desk. He finds a note that reads, "Got you covered – M." Elwood walks in with Kevin and a security guard! The guard hauls Luke away.
Noah comes to the police station to see Luke; he says Kevin double-crossed them! Luke insists that Elwood is guilty and asks Noah to post bail. Margo walks in and asks what he was thinking.
