Forty-five-year-old Tarrytown resident Suresh M. Manjanath - who was facing child pornography charges in Illinois - killed himself Sunday by leaping from a building in Jackson Heights, NY, according to a report in The Journal News.

Manjanath had allegedly traveled to Illinois to have sex with minors when he was arrested. He killed himself less than a day and a half after he was released on bond and returned to New York.

Manjanath reportedly was facing four felony counts of dissemination of child pornography.

Sex offenders/petofiles can not be helped, period. And it's disturbing that in this day and age nothing can be done to stop them, except lock them up for the rest of their lives, where the tax payers have to foot the bill, or in this case suicide. I'm just glad he can do no more harm now than he's already done. I feel sad for the victims.
