State police probe alleged plot targeting educators in Brownsville

State police say they’re investigating a possible plot to attack the Brownsville Area School District’s superintendent and two former top administrators.

In a vague release issued Thursday afternoon, police said they’re looking at reports that a current administrator asked another employee twice if he could find someone to assault superintedent Phillip J. Savini Jr., 54, of Uniontown, former superintendent Lawrence L. Golembiewski, 62, of Canonsburg and former assistant superintendent Harry Miale, 63, also of Canonsburg. The report did not name the persons of interest in the case and offered no clue about a motive.

Brownsville school board solicitor Jeremy Davis confirmed police are investigating the matter.

“I am aware of an incident being turned over to the state police,” Davis said.

Davis said no charges have been filed and expressed surprise the names of the possible victims were released by police.

Attempts to reach all three possible victims and members of the Brownsville school board were unsuccessful.

State trooper Charles Miller, who wrote the report, could not be reached for comment.
