The suspect used to work for USD 214, the Ulysses school district. The district said the case was not related to any students. It released this statement:

Almost two years ago law enforcement interviewed an employee of the district. It is our understanding that the investigation was not related in any way to any students, staff or the former employee’s position in the district. We have not received any information other than the original statement from law enforcement that an investigation has taken place.”
