Country singer Daniel Lee Martin found dead after an attempted suicide!
One of the hit country singers from Nashville, Daniel Lee Martin has allegedly taken his life. The unfortunate incident happened while the singer was awaiting trial for child sex charges.
The local authorities from Pasco County, Sheriff's Office found his unconscious body at his own residence in New Port Richey, Florida. With a gunshot mark in his body, the cause of death was deduced as a suicide.
The Pasco County's deputies found his body while attempting to serve him an arrest warrant which would drag him down back to Tennessee. Initially, they tried to contact him and when he failed to do so, a team of SWAT decided to personally visit him.
His mother was most probably the only person who saw him alive. According to him, she last met him at around 12:30 p.m.
Kim Helper, Williamson County District Attorney, said the country singer was due to show up for a hearing on Friday for the alleged sex crimes against underage girls.
He was first indicted on the deceitful crimes back in 2018. At that time, the court documents maintained, Daniel had involved himself in lewd acts against three different minors, all under 13.
Then in late 2018, Daniel re-located himself to Florida where ironically, he was arrested over the same charges just last month.
