TX- Suspected Child Molester Kills Self, Sheriff Says

Frankie Lewis Tucker Found Dead in Jail Cell

4-7-2008 Texas:

A suspected child molester killed himself inside the Parker County Justice Center on Sunday morning, officials said.

Corrections officers found Frankie Lewis Tucker lying on the floor of his cell at about 10:45 a.m., according to a news release issued by Sheriff Larry Fowler.

The 55-year-old Weatherford man choked himself with an electric cord from a portable radio that he tied to a metal table, the release stated.

Officers, medical personnel and responding paramedics were unable to revive Tucker.

Tucker, who has a possible law enforcement and military background, was placed in a segregation cell on Saturday morning when he was booked into the facility.

He was the subject of a local and nationwide manhunt involving allegations of indecency with a child.

United States Marshals arrested him at a bus terminal in Bakersfield, Calif. on March 30.

A preliminary report from the Tarrant County Medical Examiners Office on Monday ruled Tucker's death a suicide by hanging. ..more.. by FOX 4
