MERRILL, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in Merrill said more Friday about a high school band director who resigned after a complaint of what was called "questionable behavior."
Police Chief Ken Neff tells WJMT Radio in Merrill that 27-year-old Matt Callope apparently had a relationship with a 16-year-old student. The chief said no evidence of illegal conduct has turned up so far.
Police received an anonymous call last Friday about the purported relationship. The caller also said the teacher's wife intercepted messages between Callope and the girl.
Callope was put on paid leave a week ago, before school officials could fully investigate. School officials turned the matter over to police.
Callope was in his fourth year directing two high school music groups and a middle school's 6th-grade bands.
