Friday, a criminal investigation by Indiana State Police Detective Josh Maller resulted in the arrest of Jeffrey Marsee, 59, of Upland, on numerous felony charges.
On December 9, 2020, Detective Maller initiated a criminal investigation, at the request of the Taylor University Police Department, into allegations of possession of child pornography and child molestation involving Jeffrey Marsee, a Taylor University employee.
During the investigation, evidence revealed that Marsee had allegedly committed sexual acts with a then 12 to 13-year-old boy. The purported crime occurred at a Grant County home between the summer and fall of 2002. During a forensic examination of Marsee’s electronic devices, investigators allegedly located child pornography. Further investigation revealed evidence that in 2016 Marsee purportedly uploaded photos containing child pornography to a web-based chat group.
As of Friday, Marsee was being held in the Grant County Jail with bonds of $100,000 and $20,000.
Marsee was dismissed from employment at Taylor University on December 11, 2020.
