Ex-headmaster of Tower Hill turns himself in

The former leader of Tower Hill is now behind bars.

WDEL's Amy Cherry reports.



Chris Wheeler is being held on more than $1 million bail after turning himself in just one day after police announced he would face child porn charges.

Wheeler surrendered himself to the state's Child Predator Task Force Friday after authorities had said he was missing.

Wheeler, 53, faces 25 charges of dealing in child porn.

The charges are the result of last week's search of Wheeler's Wilmington residence and office as part of a state investigation into allegations of child abuse.

Wheeler stepped down from his post at Tower Hill immediately afterwards. Parents were alerted to the the news that Wheeler was the subject of a police investigation via an e-mail, obtained by WDEL.
