MARION — Police are investigating a Linn-Mar High School nurse after receiving reports she engaged in sexual intercourse with and received sexually explicit messages from an underage student.
Angela Beik, 46, told two UnityPoint Health-St. Luke’s Hospital nurses about her interactions with a 16-year-old, according to a search warrant affidavit for her cellphone. The conversation prompted them, as mandatory reporters, to report Beik to the Iowa Department of Human Services and their supervisors at St. Luke’s Hospital.
The Linn-Mar Community School District placed Beik on paid leave March 20, district spokesman Matthew May said, and is conducting an internal investigation. Beik has been an employee of the district since August 2016.
At the time of her alleged interaction with a student, Beik was employed by both St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids and the Linn-Mar Community School District in Marion, the affidavit states.
According to the warrant affidavit, Beik told the nurses she had a “make out session” with a Linn-Mar student in October 2017 and then had sexual contact with the teenager in March 2018, which she reportedly “described in great detail.”
DHS opened an investigation of Beik “on or about” March 18, according to the affidavit, and Marion police obtained her phone shortly thereafter.
