Former Ongar boarding school teacher facing child sex charges suffocated himself with a plastic bag

A former teacher who had been arrested in relation to historic child sex offences at a former boarding school suffocated himself before charges could be brought against him.

John Stagg, 65, a former teacher at Elmbridge boarding school in Fyfield, Ongar, was arrested on October 28, 2015, before a file was passed to the Crown Prosecution Service for a decision on charging Stagg with five counts of buggery and eight counts of indecent assault.
