TX- Man charged in rape of San Leon girls found dead

5-23-2009 Texas:

GALVESTON — A man charged with the sexual assault of two San Leon girls was found dead, apparently by hanging, in his Galveston County jail cell Friday morning.

A sheriff’s office spokesman said it appeared Robert Bryan Dooley killed himself.

Dooley, 46, was arrested Tuesday on charges he raped two girls, ages 8 and 12. The convicted sex offender had moved to Galveston County from San Antonio to find work as a handyman after Hurricane Ike.

Sheriff’s Office spokesman Maj. Ray Tuttoilmondo said jailers found an unconscious Dooley in his cell about 1:30 a.m. Efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.

A note believed to have been written by Dooley was found in the cell. Dooley was the only prisoner in the cell, Tuttoilmondo said.

Dooley was in the one-man cell after medical staff decided he should be placed away from the general jail population, Tuttoilmondo said.

The medical examiner will determine the cause of death, but investigators suspect Dooley used a piece of cloth in the cell as a makeshift noose.

Tuttoilmondo said the sheriff’s criminal investigation division and the office of professional standards are investigating. As a matter of protocol, the Texas attorney general and the Galveston County district attorney also will investigate. ..Source.. by T.J. Aulds, The Daily News
