HAVERHILL, Mass. —

"We are very concerned about the allegation, and we are cooperating with police," Burger said.

Strasnick said that when Garsteck became aware of the investigation, he showed up at the police station to try to clear his name.

Police said he denied having a romantic relationship with the girl. He also told police he had a relationship with the victim's family, which included sharing family holidays, taking trips to the beach and seeing movies with the girl's mother.

The report said investigators asked Garsteck to take a DNA test to eliminate him from suspicion but he refused.

Details for this story were reported by The Eagle-Tribune in North Andover, Mass.
