New Jersey cops solve case of 'mystery pooper'

Authorities have caught the person responsible for leaving excrement next to a school running track.
An investigation in to the matter had been launched after students and sports coaches at Holmdel High School in Monmouth County complained to police that a mysterious individual had been defecating next to the track 'on a regular basis'.

After officers actually witnessed him in the act, the culprit was identified as Kenilworth school superintendent Thomas Tramaglini - the 'highly regarded' head of the local education authority.

"Earlier today, we learned of municipal court charges facing our current superintendent of schools in Holmdel, NJ," the school board wrote on Facebook.

"Given the nature of those charges, he asked for and was granted a paid leave of absence."

It remains unclear why Mr. Tramaglini had used the running track as a toilet, however some have speculated that he may have had a bowel condition that left him unable to hold it in.

He has since been charged with public defecation, lewdness and littering.

From the article.... "... the culprit was identified as Kenilworth school superintendent Thomas Tramaglini - the 'highly regarded' head of the local education authority." The local education authority has now been put in the capable hands of his number two.

Truthfully having to poo while running is a thing. If dude is older (which I'm guessing is the case based on job title) he may have just chose the school to run at because it provided a place where he didn't have to risk making the mad dash to a toilet. Of course that doesn't explain why he didn't clean up after himself though

Or why he did it multiple times... I'm sure he would have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for those meddling kids!

Even with a bowel condition he could have exited the running track before defecating. To me, it seems intentional.

Instead of "excuses", maybe, just maybe he's "weird"

I'd give him the benefit of the doubt, when I was much younger and used to run to keep fit, one of my running partners always without fail would have to divert to a bush for a dump.
