Teacher Accused of Sexual Assault Found Dead

A 53-year-old middle school teacher who was arrested in Buffalo Grove on charges of child sexual assault was found dead in his home Monday morning of an apparent suicide.

Ronald Vos, a teacher at MacArthur Middle School in Prospect Heights, was accused of sexually assaulting a juvenile at school and on three more occasions outside the school between September 2005 and March 2007, police said.

Prospect Heights police were informed in September by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services about an allegation of sexual abuse at the school in September 2005.

An investigation of computer records indicated Vos and the juvenile agreed to trade sex for beer and cigarettes, police said.

Vos's wife, who had not been living in the home since her husband's arrest, went to the home about 5:45 a.m. Monday and found him hanging, dead from an apparent suicide.
