A man wanted on multiple out-of- state warrants for possession of child pornography died Wednesday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound after members of the U.S. Marshals Service Regional Fugitive Task Force arrived at a Crestview hotel to take him into custody.

The suspect, considered armed and dangerous, was believed to be hiding out in a room at the hotel. Task Force members knocked on his door shortly before 2 a.m. and announced their presence.

It happened in south Broken Arrow Friday night into Saturday morning

Broken Arrow, Okla. — A man suspected of child pornography and sexual abuse killed himself after a standoff with police in Broken Arrow early Saturday morning.

Maj. Mark Irwin with Broken Arrow police tells KRMG the incident started around 10 p.m., in a neighborhood near West Jasper St. and South Aspen Ave., (!45h E. Ave. and 131st St.).

Detectives served a search warrant for child abuse, child sex abuse, and child pornography on John Murray Jr.'s home after a family member approached them with evidence.

Irwin said detectives served the warrant after hours because of the fear that Murray might destroy evidence.

"The situation developed rapidly," he said.

BLUE SPRINGS, Missouri — Authorities in western Missouri say a man found dead inside his submerged car was being investigated for crimes related to child pornography.

A witness called the Jackson County Sheriff's Office around noon Tuesday after seeing a car speed into Lake Jacomo (jah-COH'-moh). Divers from the Lee's Summit Underwater Recovery team helped pull the vehicle from the water.

3-19-2014 Ohio:

A Granville man indicted Feb. 27 on multiple counts of having child pornography was rushed to the hospital Feb. 28 and died Monday from his apparent self-inflicted injuries.

Tyler C. Grossett, 27, last known address 560 Jones Road, was indicted as a result of a Central Ohio task force investigation of Internet crimes against children in late 2012, Licking County Prosecutor Ken Oswalt said.

According to his death notice, he was at the Selma Markowitz Care Center, operated by Hospice of Central Ohio, at the time of his death.

At 11:55 a.m. Feb. 28, a Granville Township Fire Department ambulance was called to Grossett’s Jones Road address regarding a reported overdose.

Granville Police Department Sgt. Keith Blackledge said the case is still open while officials await an autopsy report, but he could confirm suicide. Blackledge said the original report to Jones Road was an attempted suicide for an unresponsive person.

Oswalt said that to his knowledge Grossett had been in medical treatment since the day of his apparent overdose and he had never regained consciousness.

According to Licking County Sheriff Randy Thorp, deputies tried to serve the summons on the indictment to Grossett late in the morning Feb. 28, but were unable to make contact and left a standard note on the door to contact the office.

Before the indictment, the task force executed a search warrant at Grossett’s home and seized a computer that allegedly had “tens of thousands” of suspected images of child pornography, Oswalt said.

An investigation was ongoing for about a year to try to determine how many of the images actually constituted child pornography and the case was handed over to the Licking County Prosecutor’s Office in January.

Grossett was indicted on five fourth-degree felony counts of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor Feb. 27 by a grand jury. He was scheduled to have an initial bond hearing Tuesday in Licking County Common Pleas Court. ..Source.. by Advocate staff

3-5-2014 California:

A cold case murder suspect identified through fingerprint and DNA evidence was found dead days after learning that he'd been linked to the crime.

Police told The San Francisco Chronicle ( that 48-year-old Robert Hathaway hanged himself on Tuesday, four days after Fairfield police interviewed him about the killing and collected a DNA sample.

Hathaway was a suspect in the Aug. 31, 1983 murder and sexual assault of 40-year-old Priscilla Strole. The victim's 15-year-old son found Strole's body.

Police ran fingerprints and DNA from the crime scene through a new law enforcement database this year, and obtained a match for Hathaway, who was 17 at the time and a friend of the victim's son.

Hathaway in 1986 was arrested for burglary and his prints were entered into a database. ..Source.. by PressDemocrate

1-24-2014 Maryland:

The former chief of staff to Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) who was arrested on child pornography charges last month has been found dead in a suicide.

Jesse Ryan Loskarn, 35, hanged himself in his parents' house in Sykesville, Md., according to a spokesperson for Maryland's office of the chief medical examiner.

Authorities found Loskarn's body on Thursday after responding to a call at approximately 12 p.m., according to a statement from the Carroll County Sheriff's Department.

A preliminary investigation indicated that Loskarn had committed suicide, and the body was then transported to the State Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy.

Loskarn had been released into his parents’ custody in mid-December after being charged with possession and distribution of child pornography. Prosecutors had until Feb. 10 to formally indict Loskarn in the case. 

At a hearing in December, Loskarn was confined to his parents’ home, where he was banned from using any electronic device that could allow him to access the Internet. Loskarn was ordered to be under high-intensity supervision during his release and was required to wear an electronic monitoring device.

Prosecutors had argued against Loskarn’s release, warning there was no way to ensure he did not have access to the Internet and that he was at risk of fleeing or harming himself.

1-17-2014 Virginia:

Chesapeake, Va. - SWAT teams used an armored vehicle to get closer to a Shelview Circle home on Friday.

They tried for several hours to make contact with a man inside, but when they repeatedly got no response, they finally went inside just before 3 p.m. to find him dead.

“It’s definitely scary. Nobody wants to see this in their neighborhood. Nobody wants to see this anywhere,” commented a neighbor.

Police say they went to the home to execute a search warrant for child pornography around 9:30 this morning.

They say they heard what sounded like a gunshot as they approached the front door.

That’s when they decided to call in the swat team.

“What I know now is that this is stemming from an investigation that was initiated in November. Again, we don’t have any arrest warrants on file at this point. It’s just an investigation. We were going in for property,” says Kelly O’Sullivan with the Chesapeake Police Department.

Officers say they don’t know if the man found dead is the suspect in the child pornography case.

Forensics crews and detectives will now go inside the home to start their investigation. ..Source.. by NewsChannel3
