Sex offender may have killed himself

Sheriff's deputies are investigating the death of a registered sex offender who was found in a home outside Castroville after his girlfriend reported catching him molesting her 10-year-old daughter Friday.

Sheriff's Cmdr. Mike Richards said it appears the 47-year-old man died of self-inflicted wounds caused by a sharp pointed object. An autopsy is pending.

The Herald is not naming the man because coroner's officials said they were still trying to notify his family Friday.

About 10:30 a.m., the woman called 911 and said she had arrived home and saw her boyfriend molesting her daughter. The woman called police after leaving the house with girl, Richards said.

She indicated the man was threatening to commit suicide.

Deputies responded to the house. After about an hour of trying to make contact, they entered the house and discovered the man dead in the master bathroom.

The man was a registered sex offender who was released from parole in May, Richards said. He had previously been convicted of lewd acts with a child under 14, sexual abuse of a child and indecent exposure, according to the state's Registered Sex Offender Information Web site.

Richards said it was unclear Friday how long the girl's mother was involved with the man or if she was aware of his history.

"There is still an ongoing investigation," he said, and that it was unclear if the girl and her mother were living in the same home as the man.

Deputies said the girl was taken to a Salinas hospital and later released to the custody of her father. ..Source.. by DANIEL LOPEZ, Herald Staff Writer
