Officials: Teacher Might Have Given Flutes Tainted With Bodily Fluids To OC Schools

The flutes in question were part of the Flutes Across the World music program. Their website was down Friday.

TRABUCO HILLS (CBSLA.com) — 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.

The California Department of Justice and the United States Postal Service are investigating a yet unnamed music instructor for giving flutes that might contain bodily fluids to several school districts in Southern California, including the Fountain Valley, Capistrano, and Newport Mesa agencies, the Orange County Register reported Friday.

The brightly decorated, PVC pipe flutes in question might have been part of the Flutes Across the World music program, the Fountain Valley School District superintended said in the Register.

Attorney John Manly, who represented victims of the Miramonte Elementary sexual abuse case, told CBS2 News, “Until our culture, and our educational system, and our law enforcement, and our society gets serious about protecting kids, this is gonna continue.”

The schools named that might have been affected are Courreges Elementary School in Fountain Valley and Sonora Elementary School in Costa Mesa.
