FOXBORO - Faced with the possibility of multiple lawsuits from alleged victims, selectmen will meet next Tuesday behind closed doors with police for an update on the criminal investigation of accused child molester William E. Sheehan Jr.

But, while some of Sheehan's reported victims have hired an attorney, "I am concerned for alleged victims and the town and we want to make sure that whatever we can do to assist we are doing it," selectmen Chairman James DeVellis said Wednesday. A central question being asked in town is whether adults in positions of responsibility failed to take appropriate action on information they may have had on Sheehan, a Foxboro teacher, scout leader and swimming director at Cocasset River Park prior to his move to Florida in 1981.
