EBENSBURG, Pa. (AP) - Authorities are investigating whether a suspended Catholic schoolteacher who fell to his death in Canada, where he had taken a teenage student, may have been involved with other students.

Thomas M. Lemmon, 38, of Johnstown, fell or jumped to his death on March 6 in Welland, Ontario, a day after he had been suspended from Bishop McCort High School in Johnstown.

School officials wouldn't disclose specifics of Lemmon's suspension. Police said the 15-year-old girl went willingly; she has been returned to her mother.

While Canadian authorities haven't yet ruled Lemmon's death an accident or suicide, the Altoona-Johnstown Roman Catholic Diocese is treating it as suicide.

Cambria County detectives took personal and school computers used by Lemmon to gather evidence. But District Attorney David Tulowitzki said even if other victims are found, little could be done because the Lemmon is dead.

The county's Children and Youth Services said it is awaiting information to see if it will begin an investigation.
