(NewsNation Now) – Tennessee’s mom is accused of luring on social media at least nine teenage boys to have sex with her.
Investigators say 38-year-old Melissa Blair traded items for sexual encounters with male students attending McMinn Central High School. She even had one of her own children enrolled in the district. This child has now been transferred.
“They’re still asking for more victims to stand out,” said Bo Williams, head of NewsNation WATE in Knoxville. “Dan Abrams Live.”
County School Principal McMinn Lee Parkison said the investigation began after an anonymous letter was left in his office.
“Without them, it could go on,” Parkinson said, thanking the person who wrote the letter.
Parkinson said Blair did not work at the school, but was involved in school clubs, “like other parents.”
The clashes took place from the spring of 2020 to the end of 2021, officials say. Sheriff Joe Guy said two students have since become adults.
“The chief, noting that in our time and age of social media … was somewhat shocked that we didn’t have any red flags that would lead to that, no warnings,” Williams said.
Mr Blair is charged with 18 counts of aggravated rape, four counts of trafficking through prostitution and one count of solicitation. Her indictment revealed that the car had been confiscated.
Asked about the reaction of the community, Williams replied: “They just don’t believe it.”
Mr Blair is currently on bail of $ 100,000. Her indictment is scheduled for February 28.
The district school system prohibited her from engaging in school property and activities.
