Music teacher ‘gave flutes to thousands of children infected with his SEMEN’ in California schools
A TEACHER is being investigated over allegations he gave flutes contaminated with semen to schoolchildren.
Thousands of soiled instruments may have been sent to children as part of a global music program.
The anonymous teacher has been arrested and is being questioned amid wider allegations of sexual misconduct.
California authorities say the flutes, which are painted by American students before being sent to needy children around the world, could have ended up in 13 districts in the south of the state.
Letters sent home to parents said the teacher, described as an “independent contractor”, ran the Flutes Across The World program for fifth graders aged 10 to 11.
Superintendent Mark Johnson, head of the Fountain Valley School District, said the instruments “are potentially contaminated with bodily fluids” and called on parents to turn them over to police.
“You have to read between the lines, and it’s probably not sweat,” one parent said.
A dad in Los Angeles told NBC News: “It’s disgusting, it’s unreal, you can’t even really understand. It makes my stomach hurt.”
“I think there’s something really sick going on here,” said a parent from the Fountain Valley district.
The California Department of Justice is leading the statewide investigation.
“As part of the investigation, we are working with local law enforcement and school districts to collect instruments for the California Department of Justice to process,” a spokesperson said.
A statement from the US Postal Service, which was used to send the streamers, said “protecting children from crimes of sexual abuse and exploitation is a priority.”
