Swim team coach found dead hours after child porn arrest
EAU CLAIRE - A man who drowned in Lake Wissota was the same man who had been arrested just hours earlier for child porn.
Daniel Weggel was a swimming coach in the Eau Claire school district.
Weggel was arrested Friday after police found photos of nude girls in his home, according to the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram. During the search, police also seized computers and other electronics, which reportedly showed hidden cameras in his home and the girls' homes.
“Right now, what the investigation is about is finding the victims and notifying their parents,” Sheriff Ron Cramer said.
The 32-year-old left a suicide note.
