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.
At LAST! A reasonable mind! I thought I was here alone...Trying to inform people of the insidious nature of sexual predators is a thankless job, but it has to be done.
