Gymnastics Coach Accused Of Child Sexual Misconduct Found Dead In Jail Cell From Apparent Suicide

no title

Marvin Sharp, an award-winning gymnastics coach in Indianapolis, Indiana who was accused of sexual misconduct with a minor, was found dead Saturday night in his jail cell by authorities.

According to law enforcement, prison workers discovered Sharp's body at roughly 8:15 pm Saturday night, and suicide is suspected, though officials wouldn't share more.

Katie Carlson, spokeswoman for the Marion County Sherriff's Office, said:

"A follow up investigation is being conducted by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, the Marion County Sheriff's Office and the Marion County coroner's office."

Sharp, who was the USA Gymnastics Coach of the Year in 2010, had been under investigation in his side business — as a photographer — over complaints of some of the photo shoots he had done with kids.

That probe eventually led to his arrest back in August when accusations came to light that he had fondled a 14-year-old gymnastics student, after which local and federal investigators raided Sharp's home and found thousands of images of child pornography.
