Flutes contaminated with semen sent to OC elementary schools

Flutes contaminated with semen sent to OC elementary schools”

Local law enforcement on Friday confirmed the flutes "may have been inappropriately contaminated with the suspect's bodily fluid", Burris said.

A music teacher in the Los Angeles area is being investigated for allegedly contaminating children's flutes with bodily fluids.

A statement from the Fountain Valley School District is just one of dozens of alarming notifications sent to thousands of parents in Orange and Los Angeles counties.

District officials said the flutes were made of PVC plastic piping and a single wine cork and had an exterior that could be decorated.

The music teacher under investigation taught this man's son during a music program past year at Courreges Elementary School.

State and federal agencies are looking into a disturbing incident in which a teacher might have distributed handmade flutes tainted with the man's bodily fluids to school districts across Orange County. So far, one school in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District is involved in the investigation as well as one school in the Fountain Valley School District.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is also part of the investigation and said in part in a statement that "protecting children from crimes of sexual abuse and exploitation is a priority".

The individual who possibly contaminated the students' material led music education programs at multiple schools within the district as well as other locations in Orange County and other Southern California school districts, Ryan Burris, chief communications officer at Capistrano Unified School District, wrote in the email to parents.

Fountain Valley police Sgt. Kham Vang told the newspaper that the department was collecting the flutes at its station at 10200 Slater Avenue. The superintendent asked that any parents who had children in the Flutes Across the World program remove the instruments from their child's possession and place it in a paper bag.

Similar messages went to families in the Capistrano Unified School District and Newport Mesa Unified School District.

"We understand this is deeply upsetting to our families and that you may be seeking more details than we can provide", he said.
