This story is graphic and contains details related to multiple indecent sexual assaults.

HEAD COACH RYAN MILLER CLAIMS NO KNOWLEDGE OF INDECENT ASSAULT

In an interview for this story Ryan Miller offered the following in an exchange with Fox Sports General Manager, Todd Bartley on Tuesday, August 21, 2018:

Bartley: Working on multiple stories related to your time at WAHS as coach and wanted to give you an opportunity to comment.

Miller: Todd I appreciate you reaching out to me in reference to my time coaching at Williamsport. The years I spent there brought great memories. However, I resigned on my own terms back in April for family related reasons and left on great terms with the school district. Therefore, I appreciate you wanting me to be involved in a sports story however I would defer all comments to the current head coach Schneider or the school district as I believe it wouldn’t be fair to comment on the team since I resigned. Coach Schneider is going to do a great job and the baseball team has a lot of potential for the future.

Bartley: So nothing on the trip in Myrtle Beach and an alleged indecent assault that is on video and being shared on social media?

Miller: Todd, I thought you were contacting me regarding the successes of the team. I have no idea what those allegations are because they were never presented or brought up to me during my tenure as head coach there. Therefore, I cant give you a comment because I had no knowledge of such a thing happening. I can assure you if they were brought up to me or presented to me they would have been dealt with in the appropriate manner. I will say though Todd, if my name is misrepresented in the story you are conducting the appropriate legal action will be taken for defamation. Like I said, I had no knowledge of those allegations and if I did they would have been dealt with in the appropriate manner. Something like that is nothing to take lightly if indeed you are accurate. But, I can assure you I resigned for family matters and nothing else. If someone alleges different, it’s an outright lie and will be dealt with accordingly. I believe in the Williamsport school district. They are professionals and if there is any further comment you would like me to make I would have to defer you to them because whatever these allegations are I’m sure they know more than I do. I hope that answers your question. Once again, I knew nothing about such allegations and if I did they would have been dealt with in the appropriate manner.

Bartley: What if multiple sources are saying differently and have gone as far to say you and another mandatory reporter issued an edict to delete phones and the video?

8/21/18, 3:20 PM

Miller: Once again Todd, my comment to you is that I had no knowledge and it was never presented to me. If it was it would have been dealt with accordingly. We were all mandated reporters. Every coach. If something were to happen and I knew about it it would have been reported. I know the truth and the truth is that I had no knowledge of whatever you are even talking about. Delete phones and videos? Clueless as to what that even pertains to as I no nothing of what you are even asking. Period. Most people, at this point, would be contacting a lawyer because you are clearly accusing me of something that I never knew about. As far as your multiple sources, could you please give me their names? I will at this point be contacting a lawyer to sue for defamation of character against them and I can assure you if I get accused of what allegedly happened I will personally, testify under oath and subpoena whoever I need to, to have them tell the truth under oath because your sources are simply wrong and telling you lies. Lies that point blank defame someone’s character and livelihood. I told you before, an alleged occurrence, like that is nothing to screw with and I feel for whoever was Victimized. I can tell you though I’m only giving you a response because I have nothing to hide and in no way worried about the truth because I’m telling the truth. However, whoever is telling you lies should be, because they will be subpoenaed to tell the truth which will ultimately show who they are and that’s a liar. I understand Todd that you are trying to break a story about an indecent incident involving youth and I get that, but you are talking to the wrong guy. I hope that your integrity as a reporter is great enough that you consider and respect what your line of work can create in a negative manner for a family that is falsely accused. It can be damaging.  Again, I have zero involvement with the alleged incident you are discussing and never had any knowledge of any situation that you are questioning. Any further questions related to this topic on my behalf would be considered repetitive and not productive.

Bartley: I’m confused, you’ve said you have no knowledge but that the school would. Then you said you know what the truth is. So my question is, what is the truth?

Miller: Todd. I’ve had enough. I didn’t do anything wrong because I never knew about what you are alleging. I defer you to the school district for any other questions because as I said before they are professionals and I’m sure handled/handling whatever it is you are alleging in the appropriate manner Only based off my experience from working with them. Like I said I have no knowledge of any of this and you attempting to twist my words is a testament to your character and from here on out I’m going to consider anymore contact harassment and if my name gets thrown into any false allegations regarding me and effects my family the individuals behind such allegations will be sued for defamation of character. Bottom line. I’ve been fair to you but you haven’t been fair to me. It’s not a threat it’s just a fact. I knew nothing, Know nothing and have nothing else to tell you. Your sources are liars and baseless. Thank you.

Ryan Miller has previously served as an alternate team host at the Little League World Series.

Interesting to note that one of the questions on the Little League World Series media credential background check form is “have you ever been convicted of a crime?”

Little League World Series team hosts must pass background checks to serve in that capacity.

Would a pair of DUI’s disqualify someone?

 

HEAD COACH RYAN MILLER HISTORY OF DUI

According to Lycoming County Court Docket Sheets, on May 31, 2012 Ryan Miller entered a Guilty Plea to a charge of DUI: Highest Rte of Alc (BAC .16+) which was his second offense.

The sentencing document outlines punishments of (confinement other Min: 90 Day(s) Max: 90 Day(s)) and (IPP Other Min: 5 Year(s) Max: 5 Year(s)).

According to the Lycoming County Court Docket Sheets Miller was represented at the time by George Lepley.

 

ZANGARA REFUSES COMMENT

As previously outlined in their responses, WASD placed Randy Zangara in Myrtle Beach at the time of the alleged incidents in March 2018.

Fox Sports Williamsport made attempts to reach Dr. Randy Zangara to discuss the phone calls referenced in this story, Dr. Zangara offered the following e-mail response from his Penn College e-mail account:  <REDACTED @pct.edu>, on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 12:43 PM

Hello Mr. Bartley,

I heard that you have both called and physically stopped by Penn College to talk with me. I am requesting that you do not contact me via phone, at work, home, or for that matter anywhere else. I presume you are wanting to ask questions about a trip that occurred in the Williamsport School District that I was not on. If in fact that is the case you must understand I will not engage in conversations pertaining to investigations I was not involved with.

Thank you Randy J. Zangara, Ed.D., Pennsylvania College of Technology

Dean of College Transitions and First Year Initiatives

Mr. Zangara in his statement says, I presume you are wanting to ask questions about a trip that occurred in the Williamsport School District that I was not on. If in fact that is the case you must understand I will not engage in conversations pertaining to investigations I was not involved with.”

Yet, in the WASD RTKL response to Fox Sports Williamsport WASD does not flatly deny the request with “the records do not exist”.

10. (Erroneously numbered as 8) Notes taken by Randy Zangara during interviews with students, parents, and staff— First, it is assumed that your request seeks notes pertaining only to the alleged indecent assault of a student athlete during the baseball team’s Myrtle Beach trip. That request is denied because these records relate to a non-criminal investigation, constitute notes by a public official for his own use, and/or identify a child then aged 17 or younger or denied because the records do not exist.

WASD further offered the following with Wanda Erb in the October 8, 2019 affidavit:

8. Regarding Requestor’s sixth request, I conducted a thorough examination of files in the possession, custody and control of the Agency for records responsive to the request. This entailed contacting the Agency’s cellular phone provider and inquiring whether the text of any text message could be recovered as of the date of the request. The provider informed me that the contents of the messages could not be obtained without a court order. The provider was able to produce call and text logs for a certain time period for those district employees whose bills were paid by the district during the course of their employment, including Brandon Pardoe, Sean McCann and Randy Zangara. Further, I reviewed the text messages then existing on the phone of Brandon Pardoe and Sean McCann with their existence. I found nothing responsive to the request.

When asked if I could conduct a similar review with Mr. Randy Zangara.

Mr. Zangara declined.

Penn College currently employs Randy Zangara as Dean of College Transitions and First Year Initiatives. Zangara was formerly the career and technical education director for the WASD.

 

HEAD COACH RYAN MILLER RESIGNS CITING FAMILY REASONS

A number of fact witnesses have shared with Fox Sports Williamsport that Head Coach Ryan Miller along with then volunteer statistician Randy Zangara showed up for the night game on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 as Holy Redeemer played Williamsport at Bowman Field – heavily intoxicated.

Fact witnesses stated that the brother of Ryan Miller was so disgusted with the situation, he left.  Fact witnesses also stated Zangara blamed it on a bad reaction to cough syrup.

Ryan Miller & Randy Zangara had 15 phone calls with each other the next day on Thursday, April 19, 2018 beginning at 7:13 a.m. through 6:46 p.m. totaling more than 90 minutes.

The brother of Ryan Miller had multiple phone conversations with Randy Zangara the same day.

Brandon Pardoe & Randy Zangara had a phone call Friday, April 20, 2018 at 3:20 p.m. and at 3:55 p.m. later that same day Zangara received a call from Ryan Miller lasting 4 minutes.

Ryan Miller submitted a typed and signed letter of resignation to WASD on Friday, April 20, 2018 citing family reasons.

The WASD School Board accepted the resignation of Ryan Miller on Tuesday, May 1, 2018.

 

VIDEO OF INCIDENT SHARED IN WAHS CAFETERIA DURING LUNCH

According to multiple WASD students, who spoke to Fox Sports Williamsport as part of the investigation; upon returning to campus from Myrtle Beach ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 began sharing the videos on his phone in the cafeteria with other students and bragging about what had occurred.

Several students interviewed by Fox Sports Williamsport shared they were repulsed by the site of the indecent assaults.

Fact witnesses also shared with Fox Sports Williamsport that the same day the videos began being shared in the cafeteria a rushed baseball player team meeting was put together later that day and players were instructed by WASD employees “to delete any evidence”.

A narrative employed by adults on the Myrtle Beach trip is that no one knew of the indecent assault until the team returned to Pennsylvania.

Several fact witnesses also shared that the indecent assaults were just “boys being boys.”

 

JOHN DOE #1 CONFIDES IN A MANDATED REPORTER – THE CHILDLINE CALL

On or around May 18, 2018 a Child Line call was placed by a concerned adult, whom JOHN DOE #1 confided it about the incident.

That person who is also a mandatory reporter made a call to ChildLine.

That person has been identified; and is having their name redacted to protect their identity.

 

JOHN DOE #1 REVICTIMIZED BY WASD

In an interview with Fox Sports Williamsport the family of JOHN DOE #1 asserts that “since his early days in the WASD there have always been issues with getting him the learning support he needs. It was a struggle to get him the correct IEP and then to keep it in place.”

JOHN DOE #1 in seeking the additional learning support “actually increased his GPA as in incentive to go on the Myrtle Beach trip.”

Then while in Myrtle beach on what should have been the trip of a lifetime, while unsupervised by any coaches or administrators; a teammate indecently assaulted JOHN DOE #1 while he slept and other teammates laugh during the attack and video it.

Then the ultimate shame, the entire incident is shared and replayed countless times by classmates on social media platforms.

 

THE COVER-UP COMES NORTH AND CONTINUES

Based on that Child Line call, Lycoming County Law enforcement was contacted and engaged in an immediate investigation of the matter and notified the Williamsport Area School District.

The Childline call was referred to Willie Weber, current Chief Detective of Lycoming County.

Weber directly reports to current and retiring Lycoming County District Attorney Ken Osokow.

Previously Weber worked for the Williamsport Bureau of Police and is a long standing Team Host commonly referred to as “uncles” during the Little League World Series. He also has a son who previously played on the Williamsport Millionaires Baseball Team.

Chief County Detective William Weber was appointed Chief County Detective on August 26, 2008. He was formerly an agent with the Williamsport Bureau Police Department with 28 years of investigative experience.

Weber is then in contact with Williamsport High School Head Principal Brandon Pardoe.

According to publicly filed Lycoming County property records, Zangara and Pardoe are neighbors and Lycoming County Chief Detective Weber lives doors away from both in the same sub-division.

Was a recusal in order for Weber and Pardoe with all of the connective tissue to the WAHS Baseball program and the nephew of the principal in the room during at least one of the indecent assaults?

 

PARDOE PARTICIPATES IN BOTH CRIMINAL AND NON-CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS

Pardoe begins interviewing fact witnesses in their homes, including the text exchange with the family of VIDEOGRAPHER #1 to set-up the meeting at that player’s home.

This is after a purported meeting with VIDEOGRAPHER #1 in the office of WAHS Head Principal and George Lepley soon after the social media shares of the videos.

VIDEOGRAPHER #1 shared with his family and teammates “in that meeting I was crying.”

The family of the VIDEOGRAPHER #1 confirmed to Fox Sports Williamsport that Pardoe visited them in their home and communicated by cell phone to set-up the meeting.

They also confirmed that their son was ”protected” since he made the decision to record the indecent assault and Pardoe “did not believe it would be appropriate to hinder any opportunities VIDEOGRAPHER #1 may have at the next (college) level.”

Why is George Lepley attending meetings with Pardoe and WASD students when Fred Holland is the WASD solicitor?

Other students and parents confirmed in-home visits by Weber with the assistance of uniformed (WBP) Williamsport Bureau of Police Officers.

Why would WBP officers accompany Weber on interviews with fact witnesses if nothing happened in Myrtle Beach?

Is this case not in the jurisdiction of Myrtle Beach authorities?

WASD confirmed the involvement of Pardoe in criminal and non-criminal investigations in their partial RTKL denial on July 18, 2019

  1. Requested of Pardoe and WASD (Erroneously numbered as 5) Written documentation of first contact from law enforcement received by WASD pertaining to an alleged indecent assault of a student athlete during the baseball team’s Myrtle Beach trip — Denied because these records relate to a criminal investigation.
  2. (Erroneously numbered as 6) Written documentation identifying law enforcement officers assigned to the case from South Carolina, Pennsylvania, and WASD pertaining to an alleged indecent assault of a student athlete during the baseball team’s Myrtle Beach trip — Denied because these records relate to both criminal and non-criminal investigations.
  3. (Erroneously numbered as 7) Notes taken by Brandon Pardoe during interviews with students, parents, and staff— First, it is assumed that your request seeks notes pertaining only to the alleged indecent assault of a student athlete during the baseball team’s Myrtle Beach trip. That request is denied because these records relate to a non-criminal investigation, constitute notes by a public official for his own use, and/or identify a child then aged 17 or younger
  4. (Erroneously numbered as 8) Notes taken by Randy Zangara during interviews with students, parents, and staff— First, it is assumed that your request seeks notes pertaining only to the alleged indecent assault of a student athlete during the baseball team’s Myrtle Beach trip. That request is denied because these records relate to a non-criminal investigation, constitute notes by a public official for his own use, and/or identify a child then aged 17 or younger or denied because the records do not exist.
  5. (Erroneously numbered as 9) Notes taken by Sean McCann during interviews with students, parents, and staff— First, it is assumed that your request seeks notes pertaining only to the alleged indecent assault of a student athlete during the baseball team’s Myrtle Beach trip.

  6. (Erroneously numbered as 10) Identity of WASD staff members assigned to process the transfer of the student who is alleged to have been the victim of an indecent assault on the Myrtle Beach trip – Denied because no record exists. This request asks the district to identify employees rather than to provide a record. The RTKL requires public entities to provide documents, not to respond to interrogatories.
  7. (Erroneously numbered as 11) Other documents relating to the law enforcement investigation into multiple incidents that were alleged to have occurred on the Myrtle Beach trip — Denied because these records relate to both criminal and non-criminal investigations.
  8. (Erroneously numbered as 12) Invoices submitted by WASD’s solicitor or other attorneys who represented the district in matters related to the baseball team’s Myrtle Beach trip — Granted. See attached.

 

DEEP CONNECTIONS BETWEEN WASD AND WILLIAMSPORT BUREAU OF POLICE

At the time of the original 2018 incident the Williamsport Bureau of Police Chief was David Young who previously retired as a Pennsylvania State Police Captain.

Chief Young retired in January of 2019. Young is quite familiar with the (Ryan) Miller family from their days in the Montoursville baseball programs.

Once Chief Young retired, Williamsport Mayor Gabriel Campana brought forward at the time Captain Jody Miller to be the next Williamsport Bureau of Police Chief.

At the time of the announcement Miller had 19 service years with the WBP.

He is now a WASD School Resource Officer (SRO).

SRO Miller is also facing a pair of formal complaints filed with the WBP in regard to his handling of an alleged altercation in the football locker room at WAHS involving several of the parties in the Myrtle Beach case.

At the time in October 2018 the Chief Young retirement was announced, Captain Miller said “the department would continue to take a philosophy of service, building bridges and not burning them and a commitment to protect and serve.”

According to a PennLive article published on on November 8, 2018, “Detective’s federal lawsuit accuses Williamsport police of being anti-union” outlines behaviors of Captain Miller.

Agent Fred L. Miller IV alleges in a suit filed Wednesday in U.S. Middle District Court that Chief David J. Young and Captain Jody Miller and Captain Donald Mayes have openly and repeatedly expressed hostility toward union activities.

The suit appears to be a rehash of virtually identical contentions that are part of an unfair labor practice charge that Miller and the union have filed with the PLRB stemming from an Aug. 31 incident in the police locker room, it says.

He accuses Mayes, his immediate supervisor, of telling him on Sept. 11 the right of free speech does not apply to the work place.

The Aug. 31 incident to which the city referred was an off-duty conversation in the police locker room in which an officer complained to Miller, a union trustee, about the lack of days off while working the flex shift created to reduce overtime.

According to another PennLive article, on December 22, 2018, “Soon-to-be police chief’s resignation surprises Pa. mayor”, Capt. Miller called in the agent, told him to write a report about the conversation and allegedly told him union members should “keep their mouths shut.”

Mayes also indicated, according to the suit, he “had been sitting on” some complaints about the time Miller spends in the district attorney’s and watch commander’s offices along with the time it takes him to get a cup of coffee in the morning.

In late December 2018, patrol Captain Jody Miller announced his resignation effective Jan. 4, 2019 which caught Mayor Gabriel J. Campana completely off guard.

Capt. Miller was named in several unfair labor practice complaints and two federal lawsuits. In one of the unfair labor practice cases, a Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board examiner found the FOP lodge president, Lt. Steven Helm, was transferred in retaliation for union activity.

It was announced on January 3, 2019 that Jody Miller would be joining the WASD as the Supervisor of Pupil Transportation and School Safety/School Police Officer at the Williamsport Area School District.

Two days later on January 5, 2019 Jody Miller resigned from the WASD as the Supervisor of Pupil Transportation and School Safety/School Police Officer at the Williamsport Area School District and returned to the WBP as a sergeant.

Soon after, Jody Miller was reassigned to the WASD as a School Resource Officer where he currently serves today.

At the time of the confusion, Miller was seeking a full pension and benefits which activate once officers turn 50 and have reached 20 years of service. He had reached 19 service years at the time.

In his previous post, Jody Miller was a captain and served as the media and public relations liaison for the WBP.

 

THE VIDEOS WERE ALREADY BEING SHARED

By the time interviews of players began the video of the indecent assault had already been provided to Weber and viewed by Pardoe and many others.

Around the time the “Millionaire Mayhem” story broke on August 24, 2018, Detective Weber called this author and admitted to being in possession of at least one video.

When challenged on the point of Lycoming County having jurisdiction in the indecent assault depicted on the video and the tape needing to be sent to Myrtle Beach authorities, Weber offered the following; “we’re not going to do that.”

When Weber makes the statement, “we’re not going to do that” who is “we’re” referring to?

Is it the official position of the Office of the Lycoming County District Attorney?

Or, the Williamsport Area School District?

Or, the Williamsport Bureau of Police?

Did Weber subpoena phone records of those on the Myrtle Beach trip as fact evidence to ensure justice for the victim?

Or by not, was it a baseball courtesy?

 

WERE THE SUBJECTS OF THESE BRAWLS FALLOUT FROM THE STUDENT BODY PERCEIVED LACK OF JUSTICE FROM THE MYRTLE BEACH INCIDENTS?

On November 24, 2019 The Williamsport Bureau of Police received a pair of misconduct complaints in regard to Williamsport Area School District Student Resource Officer Jordan Stoltzfus and SRO Jody Miller.

SRO Miller is named in a three-page complaint related to a Williamsport High School locker room brawl on September 20 during a home football game against Crestwood amd their subsequent response to it.

Crestwood won the game 15-14.

At least two students were reportedly injured in a subsequent parking lot brawl the same night.

As outlined in the complaint against SRO Jody Miller, the victims allege a physical altercation with Jeremy Sennett, defensive line coach with (closed fist) punches being thrown.

According to the complaint, head (football) coach Chuck Crews escorted the victims to their vehicle which had sustained damage that was not previously there.

When contacted for this story, Crews declined comment on the incident and the actions of his assistant coach.

Fox Sports Williamsport independently confirmed with Lycoming County officials a 911 call was placed as a result of the locker room brawl and a law enforcement response was subsequently quashed by a radio call to the 911 call center by Miller stating he was already on scene with WAHS Head Principal Brandon Pardoe.

The 911 call center then called the adult male who placed the original call to relay that information a short time later.

The family went to WBP seeking answers on September 24 attempting to meet with Police Chief Damon Hagan. Hagan was sworn in as Police Chief not long after his nomination and has been a strong advocate of community policing.

Hagan declined to comment for this story citing the WBP policy of not commenting on personnel matters.

While at the WBP, the family began giving their statement when Miller arrived and introduced himself. SRO Jody Miller noted he wasn’t aware of the incident then shared that he had seen a video of something in the locker room hallway.

At that point Miller invited the victim’s family to a meeting at Williamsport Area High School which occurred nearly an hour later in which Pardoe was present.

On the final page of the complaint, it reads as follows: “We explained the entire situation, as well as (redacted) gave his story with witness names. We were told an investigation was going to be done. Most of the dialogue came from Mr. Pardoe, with very little questioning or input from SRO Miller!”

The complaint goes onto to say the victims were “never contacted by SRO Miller to give us the results of the investigation.”

“The following Monday we had a meeting with Mr. Pardoe, coach Crews and Mr. McCann. Mr. Pardoe relayed to us the results of his investigation were that (redacted) was no longer on the football team and that he (Pardoe) spoke to players but he didn’t feel that he could speak to all of them that (redacted) listed because he felt they were ‘biased’. SRO Miller was not present at this meeting.”

The document concludes, “We feel the investigation was done by the principal and charges should be filed against (redacted)”.

September 20 Complaint (Redacted) WBP 9-20-19 Affidavit – Misconduct Complaint Form

A (redacted) named in the complaint was previously charged by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office as an adult with two counts of attempted murder, aggravated assault and other offenses in a stabbing incident in 2018.

Fox Sports Williamsport confirmed the stabbing case was moved to Juvenile Court where records are sealed.

Pardoe is no stranger to conducting investigations at WAHS as noted in the WASD Right to Know Law responses originally provided to Fox Sports Williamsport.

As previously reported Pardoe investigated allegations against the Williamsport baseball team following a team trip to Myrtle Beach in spring of 2018. A Williamsport baseball team trip Pardoe was on.

The complaint regarding Stoltzfus stems from an incident which occurred on March 22, 2018 where a student was assaulted in a WAHS classroom and thrown across several desks, breaking a few.

“SRO Stoltzfus was aware (redacted) had injuries as (redacted) was seen by the nurse and then later taken to the doctor,” according to the complaint.

SRO Stoltzfus ended up charging a student with a crime which was subsequently adjudicated by Magistrate Judge Christian Frey before being appealed to the Common Pleas level with the case reaching final disposition under Judge Marc Lovecchio.

March 2018 Complaint (Redacted) WBP 3-22-18 Affidavit – Misconduct Complaint Form

Why if nothing happened on the Myrtle Beach trip are football players and other students getting into brawls?

Were text messages exchanged with teammates possibly misidentifying student body members who became casualties of WASD inaction?

Why was additional assistance called off by SRO Miller after a 911 call was made by a concerned parent?
