Police have been investigating Black Tie Dance Studio owner Timothy Nyman since last month. He’s accused of taking approximately $5,000 raised for Brian Stuckey, and using it for himself. Stuckey died in late December. Later, family members turned to Sandusky police, wondering where the money raised for medical expenses had gone. Investigators checked bank records, and found the money had been transferred to Nyman’s personal account. He’s expected to face felony charges.
