NEW YORK (AP) -- A new investigation into alleged sexual abuse at an elite New York City private school has found that the abuse was more widespread than previously reported.
The Wall Street Journal reports ( http://on.wsj.com/1FD2yso ) the investigation into the Horace Mann School identified more than 60 former students who say they were abused from the 1960s through the 1990s. The report was compiled by a nonprofit group founded by alumni to address the scandal.
The new number of alleged victims is more than double the 25 cited in a 2013 report by the Bronx district attorney's office.
Horace Mann said in a statement Tuesday it would review the report to determine whether it contains any suggestions that would further strengthen child safety. The school previously announced a number of settlements with former students.
