Victim's Mother Speaks on News of Wangberg's Death

Posted: Updated:

A mother of an alleged victim in the Bemidji sex abuse case is showing her face on camera. This comes just hours after the teacher charged with two felony counts of criminal sexual conduct was found dead at his home just outside of Bemidji.

'This is not what any of us wanted." Alleged victims mother Christa Lemoine says she is angry, hurt, and upset to hear of the passing of John Wangberg. "We wanted this done through the justice system. We are very sad for his family. A loss is a loss." Wangberg was charged last week on 2 sexual conduct charges after Lemoine says he abused his daughter plus others while he was a teacher at Central Elementary in Bemidji.

"We worked hard to get here but his family deserves respect for grieving no one won in this situation." This is Wangberg's home on Cass lake where his body was found. Now we did reach out to law enforcement and the school district offices for a statement none of them wanted to appear on camera but the sheriff did confirm a suicide note was found on Wangberg.

 "There are a lot of unanswered questions still that we will never get answered." But Lemoine says the important thing now is for the children involved in all of this to move on. "My daughter said yesterday mommy he can't hurt anyone anymore."
