Cops: Texas Band Teacher Violates Trust
Every day, parents trust teachers to protect and guide their children. In Lubbock, Texas, police say that trust has been violated in an awful way.
Thomas Crumpler was a band teacher who worked at several Lubbock area high schools. By all appearances, he made it his job to infuse the lives of his students with the gift of music. But police say Crumpler did not have the best intentions for his students -- far from it.
According to investigators, Crumpler would invite students to his home for "extra practice." Tha's where they say he'd show some of the students pornographic videos, and allegedly talk about sex with them. Cops say they're also investigating allegations that Crumpler may have had physical contact with some students while on a trip to band camp.
After some of the alleged victims came forward, police charged Crumpler with Indecency With a Child. But it was too late. Cops say Crumpler made a run for it when he found out he was about to be arrested.
There's no telling where Thomas Crumpler might be now. But but one thing is certain: we need to get him off the streets.
Thoughts? I didn't want to gross out readers, but if you read the article below the AMW link, there are more disturbing details to this case. And it makes me believe this is a very underrated case and I'm surprised it was never aired on tv. According to an investigator in 2008, Ohio was said to be a good place to look, along with elsewhere on the East Coast. However, he also said nothing has panned out and it is "almost like this guy fell off the face of the Earth." Well, let's put Crumpler back on Earth and behind bars. If you know where he is, you have to do the right thing and call the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office.
UPDATE: I could not find any articles online in the past few years. As far as I can tell, Crumpler is still at large as of this update (7/20/2018) since I couldn't find anything to suggest otherwise. However, as always, if anyone has any updates/proof-of-updates one way or the other, they are more than welcome to let us know.
