PENNSYLVANIA ATTORNEY GENERAL JOSH SHAPIRO ISSUES SEARCH WARRANTS IN WAHS BASEBALL CRIMINAL SEXUAL MISCONDUCT CASE

TalkWilliamsport.com has confirmed the office of Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro has issued search warrants in the Williamsport Area School District “Criminal Sexual Misconduct” case.

The case was referred by Lycoming County District Attorney Ryan Gardner to Shapiro earlier this year.

On background, the referral stemmed from an incident on the WAHS baseball team trip to Myrtle Beach in 2018.

The search warrants have been filed and signed by Lycoming County President Judge Nancy Butts.

A number of parties involved in the case have been named in the search warrants which are under seal due to the sensitive nature of the case.

 

THE PARTY AT THE BEACH HOUSE IN GARDEN CITY, SOUTH CAROLINA

How did so many Williamsport Area High School baseball players get from the Atlantica Resort (team hotel) in Myrtle Beach to a rented beach house in Garden City, South Carolina?

Was it by Susquehanna Trailways bus?

Was it by car?

Did parents transport their own children?

Were the WAHS administrators aware of this get together?

Was it communicated by phone call or text message?

In the photo below posted to social media, no less than 3 students have phones visible with a fourth phone blocked from view by another person.

On the bottom right of the photo is WAHS Head Principal Brandon Pardoe with an adult beverage in hand nearly empty.

Did Pardoe drive from this location to where he was staying or was he staying at this location?

Does the WAHS Head Principal believe its proper etiquette to consume alcoholic beverages in the presence of students he is responsible for on a school sponsored trip at a beach rental?

Is it any wonder a two-time DUI offender was allowed to be the head baseball coach on his watch?

Or was it the “boys just being boys?”

Was there alcohol present at this “party”?

Let me guess, Pardoe and McCann will argue they were not there in there “official capacity” as Principal and Athletic Director.

To that point, when is a nurse not a nurse or a doctor not a doctor or a mandated reporter not a mandated reporter?

 

WHERE IS WAHS ATHLETIC DIRECTOR SEAN McCANN?

So if the WAHS administrators (Pardoe and McCann) are in Garden City, South Carolina 11 miles from the Atlantica Resort, where are all the WAHS baseball coaches?

Several WAHS coaches are photographed out on the town around the same time as the party noted above.

Was WAHS head coach Ryan Miller aware of where at least ten of his players were?

 

WAHS assistant baseball coaches David Heller, Tariq Moore, Kyle Schneider,

head coach Ryan Miller and WAHS assistant baseball coach Joel Worthington

 

So with WAHS administrators (Pardoe and McCann) in Garden City, South Carolina and the bulk of the WAHS coaches out on the town; who had eyes on the rest of the WAHS baseball players?

 

ZANGARA PHONE RECORDS PROVIDE INSIGHT INTO CONVERATIONS IN MYRTLE BEACH

WASD Right to Know Officer Wanda Erb placed Randy Zangara in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with her responses on behalf of the district.

Randy Zangara was in his role as an assistant baseball coach in Williamsport during the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina trip in 2018.

However, as his phone call logs indicate at a critical time in history, he was on the phone to his colleagues in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

WAHS Head Principal Brandon Pardoe and Randy Zangara had a phone conversation lasting 33 minutes on March 29, 2018 beginning at 2:56 p.m.

This is the only phone call according to the Randy Zangara phone records obtained through the RTKL that Pardoe speaks with Zangara during the Myrtle Beach trip by phone.

Text messages have yet to be provided by the WASD.

There is a 1-minute voicemail noted on the Zangara phone logs tied to the cell phone belonging to then head baseball coach Ryan Miller on March 29, 2018 at 3:29 p.m.

Ryan Miller and Zangara had a phone conversation lasting 20 minutes on March 29, 2018 beginning at 4:03 p.m.

TalkWilliamsport.com has confirmed Randy Zangara gave a personal endorsement of Ryan Miller to those involved in the hiring process of the twice convicted DUI offender as head baseball coach.

 

Zangara and Ryan Miller had follow-up conversations on March 30, 2018 at 9:56 p.m. for 1 minute and March 30, 2018 at 9:57 p.m. for 4 minutes.

Williamsport lost to Chantilly High School 7-1 on March 28, 2018 in a 9 a.m. game and Williamsport lost to Robinson High School 3-2 on March 29, 2018 in a noon game in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Why would Randy Zangara need to have extended phone conversations with Pardoe and Miller if he was in Myrtle Beach?

Would those conversations not have occurred in person?

 

Was the common knowledge of the party and the coaches being out of the team hotel

the opportunity used by ALLEGED PERPATRATOR #1

to commit “criminal sexual misconduct” against teammates?

 

Why would WASD RTK Officer Wanda Erb, place Randy Zangara in Myrtle Beach when he clearly was not?

 

Is the 33-minute phone call between Zangara and Pardoe enough of a reason for the WASD to withhold the phone and text records of the WASD owned phone used by Brandon Pardoe while in Myrtle Beach?

The WASD has been notified by the Pennsylvania Office of Open Records they have until Friday, October 2, 2020 to respond to the appeal filed by this author seeking phone and other records relating to the Myrtle Beach case.
