Accused molester Richard Hayes Stone, Teri Hatcher's former uncle through marriage, had been serving a 14-year jail sentence when he died Tuesday of colon cancer.
Hatcher helped put Stone behind bars after she heard of the suicide of Northern California teenager Sarah Van Cleemput. The teen shot herself in the head leaving behind a note that said: "You're probably thinking a normal teenager doesn't do this; well, ask Dick!"
Turns out Dick was Richard Stone.
Hatcher contacted authorities and in a secret interview with prosecutors revealed she was molested as a child by Dick as well.
Stone thereafter pleaded guilty.
