According to TMZ, country singer Daniel Lee Martin committed suicide from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Martin was currently under investigation for child sex abuse crimes stemming from a January 27 arrest after the alleged victim, a child, went to police saying that Martin exposed and fondled himself while sharing pornographic images with the child. Authorities say this is one of many incidents to have occurred between the child and Martin.
Martin posted $15,000 bail after his arrest on January 27. Police say they attempted to serve a new warrant on Friday which detailed 3-counts of sexual exploitation on a minor, in addition to aggravated sexual battery and solicitation of a minor to commit rape. When police entered the home, they found Martin dead.
