Additional, graphic details have been released in a court hearing Thursday for a Cumberland County school custodian accused of contaminating school lunches with bodily fluids.
Giovanni Impellizzeri, 25, of Vineland, was a custodian at Elizabeth Moore School in Upper Deerfield Township. Prosecutors say he put his feces into taco meat that was to be served to students. They also said Impellizzeri put bleach and spit into a jar of cucumbers, and he inappropriately touched himself with a pillow in a classroom.
Officials say Impellizzeri filmed himself committing these acts and uploaded the videos to an app called Telegram.
Impellizzeri was placed on leave from his job at the school pending termination. He is also facing child pornography charges.
A school staffer who consumed the tampered food was evaluated. Officials say they've been cleared of any potential health risks.
Parents are now directing their anger at Superintendent Dr. Peter Koza. A petition for Koza's resignation now has over 500 signatures.
