Melisa Trejo reported sexual abuse as early as 1989

SPRING GREEN, Wis. – For decades, Melisa Trejo has repeated allegations that her adoptive father and longtime River Valley School District teacher sexually abused her. In her quiet hometown, she wants someone to listen.

“I just want to tell my story because I want things to change,” Trejo said, adding that she’s spent plenty of time visiting and calling any department that could help her. “I’ll try different numbers, just praying and hoping that it might not fall on deaf ears.”
