More reports on the reasons behind the suicide of a hard-working school superintendent, Janet Shaner, in Weston, Connecticut. Shaner received more than $15,000 in gifts from the district's construction manager at her previous job in Pennsylvania, the story reveals, and went through an ethics commission investigation. The papers about her alleged unethical behavior there made their way to Weston, and Shaner went in disgrace, investigated by Weston-area media, and blamed by local residents for hiding her past. Even though she had supporters, warning that "to label a person morally corrupt for making a mistake would brand all of us," Shaner hanged herself in April 2001.
