An unidentified 25-year-old male music teacher for Whittemore-Prescott Area Schools reportedly sent faculty members an email claiming he sexually assaulted children, then shot himself. He was later found dead by authorities.

According to reports, included in the email were names of the children he claimed to have abused. Police believe there may have been up to 15 children from the Au Gres area assaulted. No reports of abuse came from anyone (as of now), from the Whittemore-Prescott district.

My heart breaks for all of the children hurt by this monster. I can't even imagine being a parent of one of the kids named in the email, and getting that awful call from police.

According to ABC 12, the teacher did pass a background check. We will keep you updated as more details are made available.
