Hundreds of People Contact FBI about Teacher Suspected of Drugging, Molesting Boys

Authorities aren’t certain how many children have been victimized by a teacher who has been accused of drugging and molesting boys over four decades at schools worldwide.

But the FBI is beginning to get a better idea after hundreds of people have contacted the bureau since investigators announced last month that William Vahey molested at least 90 boys whose photos were kept on a memory drive, the Associated Press reports.

On Tuesday, the FBI said it has “been contacted by several hundred individuals from around the globe wishing either to reach out as potential victims or provide information in the ongoing investigation.”

Vahey, 64, committed suicide after a maid stole his memory drive that contained the images.

Immigration Officials Curbing Controversial Drugging of Deportees

The treatment of illegal immigrants remains a controversial issue in the U.S. Here’s the latest issue.

DALLAS — Federal immigration officials, over the past year, have dramatically curtailed the controversial practice of sedating deportees with powerful anti-psychotic medication.
The move followed court challenges and a public outcry over the practice, which often involved the use of Haldol, a drug used to treat schizophrenia.
Data collected through Freedom of Information Act requests by The Dallas Morning News show that Immigration and Customs Enforcement sedated only 10 people in the past fiscal year. Haldol was used in only three cases.
Over the past six years, through October, federal immigration personnel sedated 384 deportees, an average of 64 a year, the government disclosed. Of those cases, 356 involved the use of Haldol.
U.S. officials defended the sedation policy but declined to discuss it in detail, including the frequency with which sedation has been used, which led The News to request the information through the Freedom of Information Act.
