The Lindbergh school district does not have any records of ex-teacher Donald Ingerson, who turned himself in for rape, working there.
When news broke that a 67-year-old former St. Louis-area teacher was charged with raping his students, everyone had the same question: Did it happen here? Police said Ingerson worked in five or six St. Louis County school districts, but they didn't say which ones. Only recently have school districts like Ferguson-Florissant, Rockwood and University City stepped forward to say they found records of Ingerson's employment at their schools—a difficult task since the alleged attacks have sometimes pre-dated electronic records.
