A former Vancouver ballet teacher accused of sexual exploitation has died.
Back in November 2014, Alejandro Vargas Gomez was taken into custody on two counts of sexual exploitation and one count of luring.
He was an instructor at the Goh Ballet Academy, and police alleged that he’d begun a sexual relationship with a student, who was between 16 and 18 years old, in January that year.
Dan McLaughlin with the Criminal Justice Branch confirms Gomez is now dead and his charges have been abated.
No information is being provided as to his cause of death, or whether he died in custody.
The ballet academy director said at the time the allegations surfaced that there was no evidence of inappropriate behaviour within the studio.
