Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Former Charter School Treasurer Charged With Embezzlement
A New Albany man who handled the books for more than a dozen Ohio charter schools is charged with embezzling more than $470,000 in federal education funds over six years.
U.S. Attorney Carter Stewart filed an embezzlement count against 57-year-old Carl Shye, Jr. in U.S. District Court on Thursday.
Shye was treasurer for former charter, or community, schools in Columbus, Youngstown and Dayton. Under Ohio law, such schools operate independently of any school district but under contract with a sponsoring entity.
State Auditor David Yost said he first spotted a pattern involving Shye from state audits. The auditor’s office issued more than $1 million in 62 findings for recovery against Shye over a decade.
Shye’s arraignment is June 21.
