The Federal Bureau of Investigation has said that hundreds of people have contacted its agents about paedophile teacher William Vahey, who is suspected of drugging and molesting boys over a forty-year period, the Associated Press has reported.

The US Bureau has said that it has now "been contacted by several hundred individuals from around the globe."

Vahey killed himself at age 64 after evidence of child molestation was found on one of his memory drives.
