WDRB reports Wednesday night that Kentucky State Rep. Dan Johnson, who was under investigation for alleged sexual molestation, was found dead Wednesday of a “probable suicide.”

WDRB reports:

On Tuesday, Johnson held a press conference at his church on Bardstown Road, where he denied the molestation allegations. According to court documents obtained by the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting, the alleged molestation took place on New Year’s Eve in 2012. The alleged victim, who was 17 at the time, told authorities that she was staying in a living area of the Heart of Fire City Church where Johnson was pastor, when Johnson, who had been drinking a lot, approached her, kissed her and fondled her under her clothes.

Police were alerted after seeing a Facebook post by Johnson in which he wrote, “The accusations from NPR are false GOD and only GOD knows the truth, nothing is the way they make it out to be. AMERICA will not survive this type of judge and jury fake news.”

Gov. Matt Bevin responded:

Wesley Morgan, a colleague of Johnson’s, lashed out at both parties and the media.

Johnson had not been criminally charged.
