The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Billy Potts

Police allege that a 12 year old girl was kidnapped and sexually abused by Billy Potts, although she managed to walk away from him at some point and get help.

After an amber alert was canceled for the California girl, police began searching Potts and for a van which matched the description of the one used in the crime. A highway patrol officer spotted the vehicle, and approached it to question the driver, who informed the officer that he was a registered sexual offender gave his name to the officer. As the officer was turning to walk away, Potts evidently shot himself, which resulted in his death.

If Potts did indeed sexually abuse the child after kidnapping her- then it's a shame he waited until after doing so to end his pathetic life...
