SAINT JOHN, N.B. – Two private investigators, hired by the city of Saint John, will speak at City Hall this morning regarding a probe into a new sexual assault complaint.

Although the investigators would not confirm or deny the person involved in the investigation, the Telegraph Journal reports the case surrounds Ken Estabrooks, a former police sergeant, convicted of sexually abusing four young victims between 1957 and 1982.

Allegations against Estabrooks first surfaced in 1975 but he was not convicted of the crimes until 1999.

The former sergeant received six years in prison for the assaults. He died in 2005.

More details on the investigation are expected later today.
