Lodi man guilty of sex charges commits suicide

12-5-2011 Ohio:

LAFAYETTE TWP. — A Lodi man found guilty of three counts of gross sexual impo­sition committed suicide before he could be sentenced.

Linton Auble, 70, of 574 LaVista West, was found hanging from a tree at his property at 6866 Spencer Lake Road on Sept. 21, Lt. Travis Colonius of the Medina County Sheriff’s Office said.

Auble was free on $150,000 bail at the time of his death, according to court records, and was scheduled to be sen­tenced last Thursday.

“There was apparently no foul play. All of the indicators are consistent with a suicide,” Colonius said.

He said Auble left a note to his wife, who found his body, and his children, at their LaV­ista West home.

“There was a note and a videotape he left for his wife and family. It said that he loved everyone very much, that was the general senti­ment,” Colonius said.

The lieutenant said neither the note nor the tape men­tioned the crimes Auble was found guilty of on Aug. 9.

Auble, charged with three counts of gross sexual impo­sition, changed his plea that day from not guilty to no con­test. The charges carry a max­imum penalty of five years in prison.

The case involved two vic­tims that were 8 years old at the time of the crimes in the fall of 2003, according to court records. ..Source.. by Lisa Hlavinka
