Police: 8 boys accused teacher, his husband of sex abuse
SOUTH ST. PAUL | Police documents allege a Minnesota elementary school
teacher and his husband had sexual contact with eight underage boys over several years.
South St. Paul Police released the documents this week following a four-month investigation into teacher Aric Babbitt and his husband, Matthew Deyo.
The couple was found dead in August in an apparent murder-suicide in Washington state.
Neither was charged in relation to the abuse allegations.
The deaths came shortly after a 16-year-old boy and his parents went to South St. Paul police to report an ongoing sexual relationship between the teen and the men.
The 134-page investigative file obtained by the St. Paul Pioneer Press shows the case went beyond the teen’s allegations. According to the documents, seven other boys came forward after the 16-year-old’s allegations became public.
