Kentucky lawmaker takes own life amid assault allegations

An ominous Facebook post from a Kentucky lawmaker facing sexual assault allegations is part of what prompted his family to report him missing, a sheriff said Thursday.

Republican Dan Johnson made the post Wednesday before he shot himself to death near a road in a secluded area. In the post, he asked people to take care of his wife and said “heaven is my home.” A day earlier, he had defiantly denied the sex assault allegations.

The accusations came amid a sexual harassment scandal involving other Republican lawmakers at the state Capitol. Nationwide, a growing number of celebrities and politicians have been accused of sexual misconduct in recent months, leading many to lose their jobs or resign.

Bullitt County Coroner Dave Billings said Thursday Johnson died of a single gunshot wound to the dead and officially ruled the death a suicide.
