BOONE COUNTY, WV -

Police say the evidence against former Danville Panthers Midget League Football coach Dusten Crupe was overwhelming

"We got approximately 19,000 pages of Facebook information from the defendant which is part of the evidence we used to confront him with," said Detective Lieutenant Joshua Weagel with the Boone County Sheriff's Office.  

They used conversations, posts and pictures from Facebook to make their face. Since our story aired on Sunday more families in the small town of Danville are calling police.

"I got a list of five people to contact and interview and see what allegations are made.  With the technology of Facebook and phones, it can enhance a lot," said Lt. Weagal.

Police say Crupe first indicated during interviews that other girls may be at risk.

"During his interview he did indicate the knowledge of possible inappropriate conversation with other minor females. However, he only acknowledged having contact with his victim," said Lt. Weagal.

Lieutenant Weagal has been with the department for more than ten years and the magnitude of a coach in the community being charged with sexually abusing a young girl has been an eye opening situation for the community.

"It really brings to light how these things can come about and how people you don't suspect end up in that position," said Lt. Weagal.

He urges concerned families to call the Boone County Sheriff's Office at 304-369-7340 or dial 911.
