A police officer accused in 2013 of sexually assaulting one of his wife's teenage relatives has been found dead in Maryland.
Officers found former Prince George's County Lieutenant John Warhurst’s body in an Anne Arundel County park, where they say it appears he took his own life.
Police arrested Warhurst last fall on charges of rape and sexual assault of a minor in Calvert County. His wife, Aimee Warhurst, 34, was also accused of participating in the sexual abuse of her relative. She was charged with the same offenses last fall after turning herself in to the Calvert County Sheriff's Office.
The Prince George’s County Police Department suspended Warhurst when the allegations were made. He had been with the police department for more than two decades.
