Park Tudor cancels all classes and activities Monday in the wake of headmaster’s death
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Jan. 24, 2016) – Classes, athletic events and all extracurricular activities have been canceled Monday for all students at Park Tudor in the wake of the death of the school’s headmaster, Dr. Matthew Miller.
The school’s communications director tells FOX59 the campus will be open for students, staff and parents to gather in a safe and supportive environment. School counselors and additional counselors will be available Monday to support students, staff and parents.
Classes and activates will resume on Tuesday. An all-school moment of silence is planned Tuesday morning.
Miller, 46, was found dead Saturday morning. On Monday, the coroner ruled Miller’s cause of death as a hanging and the manner of death was ruled a suicide.
Sources tell us Miller interviewed with a special task force involving crimes against children on Thursday.
Investigators served a search warrant at Park Tudor earlier this month. They were looking for evidence in a case surrounding former boys basketball coach Kyle Cox. That case involves child pornography and child exploitation, and Cox, 31, abruptly resigned from the school in December. The investigation into Cox is ongoing and no charges have been filed.
According to Miller’s LinkedIn profile, he started serving as Park Tudor’s headmaster in 2011. The school sent a letter to parents Saturday evening about his death.
A statement from Rob Brown, president of the Park Tudor Board of Directors, reads:
“The entire Park Tudor community is deeply saddened by this sudden loss. We ask that you keep Dr. Miller’s family, our students and our community in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.”
