The investigation into a fraudulent email within the Morton School District has lead police to believe Russia was the source.

Tuesday morning, a district employee got an email appearing to be from Morton Superintendent Dr. Lindsey Hall. The email asked for W-2 information. The district determined the email came from an outside entity. The Morton Police Department investigated and found the source appears to have come from Russia.

The district says names and social security numbers were released when the employee complied with the request. However, birthdays and home addresses were not included in the information.
