WA- Suspect in lewdness case commits suicide

12-4-2008 Washington:

A convicted sex offender sought by Washoe County sheriff's deputies was found dead Monday of an apparent suicide Monday in Snohomish County, Wash.

John Francis Schmidt, 48, was wanted in an investigation into lewdness with a child younger than 14.

Schmidt lived in Sun Valley at the time of the offense, and a warrant had been issued for his arrest before he fled the state, Washoe County Deputy Brooke Keast said.

Schmidt was convicted in Boise, Idaho, of lewdness with an 8-year-old boy and later confessed to victimizing 38 other children in other states during a 20-year period, Keast said. ..News Source.. by
