An alleged pedophile just died in a Colorado jail while awaiting trial. Jeffrey Beagley was facing numerous charges after murdering and sexually assaulting a nine-year-old girl.
Beagley is suspected to have poisoned the girl with chloroform and abused her. Beagley had made no plea before his death.
The reason for his death in jail is unknown. He was found unresponsive in his cell and pronounced dead at the hospital.
The immediate suspect at this time is some kind of poisoning. Authorities are investigating the situation and awaiting the toxicology report.
If indeed Beagley was poisoned, relatives of the girl are the prime suspect. The evidence against him was clear.
If Beagley did commit the crimes he was accused of, his death is likely to be little mourned. He killed a young girl and abused her and now he is dead.
