A rural Chebanse man, accused of molesting one family member and raping another, shot and killed himself on Thursday, the day of his arraignment in Kankakee County court.
Lloyd L. Silsbee, 75, died at a Kankakee hospital according to a Kankakee County sheriff's police report.
His wife told officers he went out to a shed and she heard a gunshot.
According to court records, Silsbee, who was arrested in March, was indicted by a grand jury on April 3. He was supposed to be arraigned on April 13 but received a continuance so he could hire a lawyer.
Silsbee is accused of molesting a 5-year-old relative, who reported it to another family member. Another girl, now 14, came forward and said Silsbee raped her when she was 7 or 8 years old. ..Source.. by Daily Jurnal
