MILLEDGEVILLE, IL – Village of Milledgeville Police are investigating possible misconduct at Milledgeville High School. On Saturday, a victim filed a report saying inappropriate video was taken in the boys’ locker room.

Chief James Haag says this investigation is more complicated because the alleged video was taken on a popular cell phone app, Snapchat. Videos and pictures disappear after only ten seconds of viewing.

Chief Haag says, “We initiated an investigation on Monday. We’re at the point now where we’re trying to sort out the facts from the fiction, and decide what’s a school discipline issue, and if there is a criminal matter.”

Police are working closely with the school district, interviewing multiple students in the investigation. They are also working with Snapchat and cell phone providers to get access of the video.

Superintendent Tim Schurman says they have zero tolerance for bullying or harassment. “When we are aware of an issue that is brought to our administrators, we investigate quickly, thoroughly. If the evidence supports the punishment, that punishment is exacted.”

This all depends on finding the video – a ten-second Snapchat that could lead to a trip to the principal’s office, or to a state court.
