Brownsville Area Middle School administrator placed on leave in threat investigation
A Brownsville Area Middle School administrator was placed on paid leave for his alleged involvement in a plot in March to have another school employee assault the superintendent and two former top administrators.
Superintendent Philip J. Savini, 54, one of the targets of the suspect’s alleged plot, placed the administrator on paid leave, pending the outcome of the criminal investigation conducted by state police at Belle Vernon, Jeremy Davis, the district’s solicitor, said Friday.
Davis declined to identify the administrator.
Trooper Charles A. Miller stated in a news release that the administrator initially solicited a 54-year-old school district employee from Allison, near Brownsville, on March 31 to find someone to assault former Assistant Superintendent Harry Miale, 63, of Canonsburg.
The unidentified administrator then asked the school district employee to find someone to assault Miale; former Superintendent Lawrence L. Golembiewski, 62, of Canonsburg; and Savini.
The police report listed the names of the three victims but did not give the names of the suspects. No motive was indicated.
Miller could not be reached for comment Friday.
