Accused Child Molester Commits Suicide

1-3-2007 Vermont:

Police say he admitted to fondling two little girls at his wife's in-home day care. On Wednesday, Ralph Guillette killed himself at the house where the alleged molestation took place.

Police say 53 year-old Ralph Guillette was found near the back door of his house on Patchen Road in South Burlington. It's where his wife, Cheryl, has run a daycare for more than 15 years until last weekend when it was shut down.

Guillette reportedly shot himself as officers approached the house. Police were called to the home by a family member who was concerned he'd try to hurt himself. A suicide note was found.

Guillette's suicide comes a day after he was in court to face charges for allegedly fondling a 7 year-old girl. And police say he admitted he molested a 5 year-old as well.

Since his court appearance, the Chittenden Unit for Special Investigations has received other calls from concerned people in the community. Some of those calls have pointed police to at least one other potential victim.

Guillette had been released on bail after his arrest on Saturday. It's unclear what the suicide note said. Police did not indicate if there was an admission in it.

The investigation into the suicide and the alleged molestations will continue. ..more.. by Darren Perron
