1. Is there a relative history?

He was fired on the 8th of this month. The parents received an email on the 10th that there is an investigation by law enforcement.
Usually, institutions are quick to defend the offender. I'm guessing there was enough evidence in the "school's" observation that they felt the need to separate themselves from this man.
Do you know if there was any abusive history with this guy?

2. I've contacted a couple of alumni to see if they knew him


I can't read News Journal articles because I'm cheap like that.

Interesting decision by the school to fire him on the 8th, but keep mum to the parents until the 10th, presumably because police might be contacting some of them. I guess they run the risk of a defamation claim before they can factually report that there is a police investigation, but I'd be curious to know the rationale for the delay.
