Former Bemidji teacher accused of sex crimes found dead


Beltrami County authorities say a former Bemidji schoolteacher charged last week with sex crimes against young children was found dead in his home Wednesday.

The sheriff says a family member found the body of John Wangberg in his home near Cass Lake. The Bemidji Pioneer reports the sheriff's department is investigating but no foul play suspected.

Wangberg was arraigned last week on charges involving sex crimes against three children between the ages of 5 and 7.
