Dr. Matthew D. Miller, head of school, Park Tudor School, was found dead at his residence early Saturday afternoon.

The Marion County Coroner confirmed Monday Dr. Miller's death was suicide by hanging.

A brief statement about Dr. Miller's passing was posted to the school's web site.

"The entire Park Tudor community is deeply saddened by this sudden loss," wrote Rob Brown, president, Park Tudor Board of Directors. "We ask that you keep Dr. Miller's family, our students and our community in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time."

Dr. Miller's death is the latest in a series of difficult situations for the private school. Earlier this month...the Indiana "Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force" searched Park Tudor.. as part of an investigation. Reports suggested the investigation may have involved former boys basketball coach Kyle Cox... who abruptly resigned in December. The school would not comment on it because it involved a police investigation.

Dr. Miller began his tenure as Park Tudor School’s sixth head of school in July, 2011. Highly educated, Dr. Miller held degrees from Dickinson College, Oxford University, University of California Berkeley, and University of Pennsylvania, where he earned his Ph.D.

Before coming to Park Tudor, Dr. Miller served at Isidore Newman School in New Orleans, the educational institution once attended by Peyton Manning.

No information about calling or funeral services for Dr. Miller has been released at this time.
