For a second time, a judge strikes a lawsuit brought by parents to keep one of the embattled Lincoln-Way High Schools open.

The south suburban community has been rocked after the school board revealed money problems and lower enrollment after years of growth, spending and new schools being built.

Last week, Lincoln-Way North had its final graduation before closing for good just a decade after opening.

On Tuesday, WGN Investigates tried to talk to the former superintendent Lawrence Wyllie who the Tribune reports may be under federal investigation for spending while he oversaw school expansion. Mark Suppelsa knocked on his door — no answer, just the sound of dogs barking.

Wyllie hasn’t spoken in public since reports surfaced he used school money for a dog school unrelated to school activities, among other things.

Wyllie is Illinois’ highest paid school retiree with a pension of well over $300,000 a year.
