A former secretary at the State Training School for Boys in Eldora has been fired for buying pain medication from a former student and then being blackmailed by that same student.
According to documents from the Unemployment Insurance Appeals Bureau, Kelly Reed told her employer about the pills and the blackmail on Feb. 8. She was initially placed on paid leave while an investigation took place. Reed was eventually fired for misconduct on March 8. Her application for employment benefits was first denied on March 27 and again at an appeal hearing on April 24.
