THE BRONX - The results of a new investigation into the Horace Mann abuse scandal found that there was more than double the amount of victims and abusers involved than initially thought.

In 2012, the Bronx district attorney found a systemic pattern of alleged abuse along a span of 30 years. The district attorney found a total of 25 victims and 12 abusers affiliated with the school.

However, an independent investigation sponsored by a non-profit organized by alumni found a more far-reaching pattern of abuse. The investigation, led by former judge and sex-crime prosecutor Leslie Crocker Snyder, claims a total of 64 students had been sexually abused by 22 Horace Mann staff members.

Despite the discovery, the statute of limitations is over for the victims.
