A disgraced Indiana pastor who was charged with soliciting sex with a minor hanged himself in a Georgia storage unit.
David James Brown, 46, was found dead from a suicide around 12:10 p.m. Monday inside the Attic Self Storage in Marietta, said Cobb County spokesman Sgt. Dana Pierce.
The death was ruled a suicide by asphyxiation by hanging, officials said.
Brown, who was a senior pastor at First Christian Church in Jeffersonville, was arrested on June 15 for the depraved act in Kentucky.
According to office of Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear, Brown became the subject of an undercover investigation created by the Cyber Crime unit, when he posed as a minor on the online messaging app, KIK.
On the day of his arrest, Brown drove more than 65 miles from Jeffersonville, Ind. to Frankfort, Kentucky with the intent of having sex with a minor he met on the app.
Upon his arrival Brown and another man, Anwar Mohammed, 33, a medical researcher at the University of Louisville, met face to face with an undercover officer from Kentucky’s Cyber Crime Unit. They were then arrested.
Brown was booked in the Franklin County Regional Jail on one count of prohibited use of an electronic communication system for the purpose of procuring a minor for a sex offense.
