TX Elementary Teacher Bill Crowley ‘Under Investigation’ At Time Of Unexpected Austin Death

AUSTIN, TX. (THECOUNT) — William B Crowley, the Austin elementary school teacher found dead last week, was under investigation involving a juvenile, reports said Tuesday.

Authorities are looking into the unexpected death of the fifth-grade teacher at Baldwin Elementary School in southwest Austin.

On Tuesday, police confirmed that the teacher was under investigation when he died, reports KVUE.

The school’s principal sent home a notice last week telling parents of the educator’s death. The note said Crowley “inspired students with his love for learning and dedication to children.”

Investigators are staying tight lipped on Crowley’s cause of death saying only that no foul play is suspected.

“There is currently an investigation into an allegation by a juvenile that appears to be an isolated incident at this time,” Austin police said in a release on Tuesday. “Due to the unfortunate passing of Mr. Crowley, and the open investigation, we feel it would be inappropriate to make any further comment until more facts can be gathered.”
