Child-rape suspect dies after jailing

12-9-2011 New Mexico:

Man charged with alleged crimes from 20 years ago

BERNALILLO, N.M. (KRQE) - An accused child rapist arrested late Thursday is headed for a mortuary instead of court after being found dead in his jail cell.

Rio Rancho police busted Stephen Vincent, 52, Thursday night after he eluded arrest for months on charges of child rape and child abuse.

Just after 3:30 a.m. the Sandoval County Detention Center notified the sheriff's department that Vincent had apparently committed suicide in his cell.

The official cause of death still must be determined by the state Office of the Medical Investigator.

Jail officials have not returned calls from News 13 asking for comment.

A grand jury in Albuquerque had indicted Vincent in September for alleged crimes dating to the early 1990s.

The district attorney's office said once they get a copy of Vincent's death certificate the case against him will be dismissed. ..Source.. by Amanda Goodman
