Global News reported on Tuesday that Michael Gregory’s body was discovered on Vancouver Island, days after charges were laid by Calgary police.

Police said the death is not criminal, and they also continue to investigate the allegations against Gregory. He was facing numerous charges of both sexual assault and sexual exploitation.

On Thursday, investigators said Gregory was responsible for a series of assaults that occurred while he was a teacher at John Ware Junior High School, with some of the alleged crimes dating back over 20 years.

Gregory was a teacher at the school between 1986 and 2006.

Police would still like to hear from any other potential victims, adding that when the accused in a case dies, they will finish examining all the evidence to find out what happened and to give closure to the victims.
