A convicted sex offender committed suicide Tuesday when State Police went to his home in Wayne County to arrest him.
Police say Charles Endicott, 73, of Fort Gay was found, in a recent compliance check, to have a gun in his possession that he was not permitted to have.
When a trooper went to his home Tuesday to execute an arrest warrant, State Police say Endicott took his own life once the trooper identified himself.
Back in 1993, Endicott was convicted of being a sex offender in Scott County, Kentucky. He was found guilty of of third-degree sexual assault of a female who was 10-years-old.
Endicott had spent 10 years behind bars for his crime.
