Man At Center of Sexual Assault Case Found Dead
The body of a man believed to be Marlin Jay Anderson was found in the Wichita Mountains early Friday.
The Comanche County Sheriff’s Office did confirm that a vehicle found on the scene was registered to Anderson and that the man found had died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Anderson was released from the Clay County, Texas jail last Thursday after his attorney posted a $75,000 bond.
Anderson was arrested on August 4th following a nearly month long investigation. The victim was described as a 3 year-old “family member”. As the investigation progressed, it was revealed that Anderson had also admitted to sexually abusing another female for several years, beginning when she too was a toddler. The now-adult female victim is reportedly the mother of the 3 year-old victim.
