An Indiana County man wanted in the sexual assault of two boys was found dead in Forest County on Saturday.
The death of Theodore Amick, 36, of White was ruled a suicide, according to Forest County Coroner Norman J. Wimer.
Pittsburgh police were searching for Amick in connection with the 2010 sexual assault of two boys on a trip to Pittsburgh.
A 12-year-old boy interviewed by a specialist at Children's Hospital on Wednesday said that in 2010 a boy invited him to celebrate his birthday in Pittsburgh with Amick. Once they arrived at a Pittsburgh hotel, Amick assaulted the boys, police said. The 12-year-old said the other boy told him Amick had done similar things during a previous trip to Erie.
Amick was reported to state police Wednesday afternoon as a missing endangered person. Police indicated he was distraught and that he was without medication for diabetes, and that he left his home around 6 p.m.
He was found dead from a gunshot wound Saturday afternoon in a remote area of Howe. Mr. Wimer said Amick appeared to have been at the location for at least two days.
Amick faced charges of indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor, corruption of minors and criminal solicitation. ..Source.. by Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
