MUSKEGON, Mich. - A former teacher in Muskegon County is under investigation for allegedly molesting several students nearly a decade ago.

Morgan Tatrow, 80, is accused of molesting at least eight children, but investigators believe there are even more victims who have not yet come forward.

Last month, the Muskegon County and Delta County prosecutors announced they are jointly investigating Tatrow. He's accused of inappropriately touching two young family members between 2008 and 2010.

Six other women have also come forward claiming Tatrow molested then when they were students at Reeths-Puffer High School back in the 1960s.  Those accusations cannot be prosecuted because the statute of limitations has passed.

Prosecutors still want to know if there are more victims, just to make things right.

If you believe you were assaulted by Tatrow, you should call the Muskegon County Prosecutor's Office at (231) 724-6435.

    This is nothing more than a witch hunt by the prosecutor! The family members who started all of this ADMITTED that they LIED about the abuse!
    What used to be normal behavior is now viewed as “abuse” such as hugging a student or telling someone they look nice. Society has gone over the top with abuse allegations. Does an 80 year old man have to spend the last years of his life in prison over false accusations?
    The prosecutor wants people who “THINK they MAY have been abused” to let him know. Maybe Tatrow’s former students who appreciated him should step up in his defense. That would be awesome!
