We've all felt guilt, if we're human. I can't imagine what a truely contrite person must feel for such a crime. I'd be suicidal too.

I also can't imagine what his victim must have felt.

Don't know what to say about this sort of thing. Pray, is my only advice.

"We've all felt guilt, if we're human. I can't imagine what a truely contrite person must feel for such a crime. I'd be suicidal too."

Sex offenders feel no guilt. Always remember this.

"I also can't imagine what his victim must have felt."

A sex offender has more than one victim because he starts early and molests whenever there is an opportunity. Many victims are too young to protest.

"Don't know what to say about this sort of thing. Pray, is my only advice."

Prayers will not help the victim (Heavenly Father has taken all this into consideration) and the prayers for the offender are wasted. They don't want the prayers, they don't think they need prayers, and they think the victims they abuse want the "attention."

It is unlikely that he killed himself because of overpowering feelings of guilt--or if he did it took him 14 years to feel that degree of guilt. Part of the horror of admitting wrongdoing to ones self is the fact that you have to live with it. If you find that very hard to bear than you can be sure your sin was very bad also. Many people can't face what they have done and deny their guilt to themselves.

Personally I feel that the guy was worried that people knew about him and felt he would be ostracized so he decided to take the premier way out--die and blame the people who "outed" him by putting the sign beside him, thereby making himself the "victim" instead of the child(ren) he molested. If he was innocent he surely did the wrong thing by killing himself, if he was guilty he should have had the guts to admit it and go on with his life...and he shouldn't have been out living among the public. Registration and tracking are not the answer to keep predators from killing children.

This man didn't kill himself because he felt guilt about hurting a child. If he had felt guilt about what he had done, he would have killed himself years ago. No, he killed himself because he was hurt when he was publicly outed. It seems to me his pity was for himself.
