Church removes music director amid FBI investigation
ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y.
(AP) » Catholic church officials on Long Island say the co-director of music at St. Agnes Cathedral in Rockville Centre has been removed from his position amid an FBI investigation into possible child exploitation charges.
Newsday reported that the Diocese of Rockville Centre made the announcement on Friday.
The church said 55-yearold Michael Wustrow directed several youth choirs at the cathedral.
Church officials say they learned this week that the FBI executed a search warrant and seized Wustrow’s work computer. He was immediately relieved of his duties.
Wustrow could not be reached for comment and the FBI did not respond to a request for comment.
The newspaper said he was in the process of leaving Long Island to take a music director position in the Diocese of Orlando, Florida.
