ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A Roman Catholic priest is on administrative leave following reports of inappropriate correspondence with two teenagers.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports the Archdiocese of St. Louis has taken the action against the Reverend William Vatterott, pending the outcome of an investigation by Ballwin police. Ballwin police confirm a complaint has been made but would not go into details.

Vatterott has been the pastor of St. Cecilia Catholic Church since 2008. He served at Holy Infant Parish in Ballwin before that.
