In what was a very disturbing story yesterday, Republican State Rep. Dan Johnson, committed suicide via gunshot.

WDRB:

Kentucky State Rep. Dan Johnson, who was under investigation for alleged sexual molestation, died from a single gunshot wound to the head, according to the Bullitt County Coroner. 

He was pronounced dead around 8:20 p.m. on Dec. 13. 

Bullitt County Sheriff Donnie Tinnell says Johnson drove to the bridge over the Salt River on Greenwell Ford Road in Mt. Washington, parked on the north side of it and shot himself in front of his car.

His body was found on the bank of the river, just past the bridge.

He posted this on Facebook shortly before killing himself.

The accusations from NPR are false GOD and only GOD knows the truth, nothing is the way they make it out to be. AMERICA will not survive this type of judge and jury fake news. Conservatives take a stand. I LOVE GOD and I LOVE MY WIFE, who is the best WIFE in the world, My Love Forever! My Mom and Dad my FAMILY and all five of my kids and Nine grandchildren two in tummies and many more to come each of you or a total gift from GOD stay strong, REBECCA needs YOU. 9-11-2001 NYC/WTC, PTSD 24/7 16 years is a sickness that will take my life, I cannot handle it any longer. IT Has Won This Life. BUT HEAVEN IS MY HOME. “PLEASE LISTEN CLOSELY, Only Three things I ask of you to do,if you love me is (1)blame no person, Satan is the accuser, so blame the Devil himself. (2) Forgive and Love everyone especially yourself .(3)most importantly LOVE GOD. P.S. I LOVE MY FRIENDS YOU ARE FAMILY! GOD LOVES ALL PEOPLE NO MATTER WHAT!

Rep. Johnson was accused of fondling a 17-year-old girl but strongly denied the claim.

This suicide needs to be a huge eye-opener when discussing these sexual-harassment/assault cases that have sprung up over the past few months. As a society, we must give everyone their due process and not claim someone is guilty before all the facts are out. We all stand against Sexual harassment and assault but we need to make sure the accusers are being truthful in their claims. The Me-Too movement has done a lot of great things. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t look to improve it. We need to make sure that everytime someone is accused we wait for the all the facts to come out before coming to a conclusion.
