Parents with children in the Lakota School District in Ohio continue to call for the resignation of superintendent Matt Miller after he allegedly expressed sexual fantasies involving children in text messages. Miller represents the second largest school district in southwest Ohio and the eighth-largest school system in the state, serving more than 16,000 students in 20 schools in Butler County, Libs of TikTok reported.
On August 8, Lakota parent Vanessa Wells filed a police report against Miller that included numerous text messages sent by Miller. Wells provided law enforcement with numerous text messages between she and Miller in which the Lakota superintendent discussed his deviant sexual activity.
Two days later, during an interview with detectives, Miller’s ex-wife alleged that her ex-husband used to traffic her to other men through Craigslist. She also alleged that Miller had sent child pornography through email and text messages.
“Do you know what I mean? Like, so there were exchanging of sexy photos. Not nude pictures, like, um, like saying hey, I want to have a threesome, and I would be expected to send that,” Miller’s ex-wife told investigators.
“There were times that he sent me pictures of young boys and young naked children,” she went on to say. When asked how young, Miller’s ex-wife, whose identity was redacted, alleged that he would send pictures of elementary school-aged boys.
“At one point he had asked me – I have a friend who has three little boys… and he said I should volunteer to watch the boys so the parents could go out. Give them sleeping pills, molest them for him and videotape it,” Miller’s ex-wife told police. Then not more than a couple weeks later… my son had his friends over. They were spending the night…They were downstairs. My husband wanted me to go down, have sex with our son and his friends.”
When detectives interviewed the Lakota superintendent, Miller did not deny the allegations. He instead shifted blame to his ex-wife, alleging that she would “role-play” and engage in “pillow talk,” which on at least one occasion included a discussion of drugging, molesting, and recording three children, Libs of TikTok reported.
A detective asked Miller if he read the “script” involving the three boys, to which the superintendent responded, “Yeah. And that involved those three kids so that is where that came from.”
The Butler County Sheriff’s Office — without conducting a review of Miller’s electronic devices — ultimately concluded that they did not have probable cause to bring charges against the Lakota superintendent. The district attorney later informed school board officials about the probe a full ten days after it was concluded.
Parents have repeatedly called for Miller’s resignation at school board meetings throughout the 2022/23 school year.
