AK- Man linked to sex abuse case commits suicide

2-28-2008 Alaska:

PALMER - A Valley man committed suicide Wednesday afternoon after Alaska State Troopers contacted him as part of an investigation of sexual abuse of a minor, according to troopers.

Troopers say Michael Able, 59, died of a self-inflicted gunshot at 4:50 p.m.

Troopers learned earlier in the day that he was suicidal and were in the area when Able drove away from his home.

When he noticed officers, Able stopped his vehicle on the roadway and shot himself, according to a trooper press release.

Troopers' spokeswoman Megan Peters said the sexual abuse allegations and the investigation were relatively new, possibly as early as the first of the week. Peters had no other information by early this afternoon.

Jon Owen, head of public safety in Palmer, said his officers were not involved because the incident happened outside the city limits. ..more.. by Anchorage Daily News
