Accused New London Teacher’s Death Ruled Suicide

MIDDLEFIELD, Conn. (AP) _ The death of Connecticut magnet school teacher whose body was found in a lake a few days after he was arrested has been ruled a suicide.

The Connecticut medical examiner’s office said Monday that an autopsy concluded 23-year-old Jeffrey Francis drowned himself in Beseck Lake in Middlefield.

The Durham man’s body was found on Friday, two days after he was arrested in Wallingford on charges of allegedly having sexual contact with an underage juvenile he met online.

He had not yet entered a plea.

Francis had been placed on administrative leave from his job as a special education teacher at the Interdistrict School for Arts in New London.
