Police found the body of a former U.S. gymnastics coach who had ties to the disgraced doctor, Larry Nassar, hours after he was criminally charged in Michigan on Thursday.
State police troopers found the body of the man, John Geddert, who died by suicide, in a rest area off the interstate at 3:24 p.m. ET in Grand Ledge, Michigan, said Kelly Rossman-McKinney, a spokeswoman for Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel.
Geddert’s attorney could not be immediately reached for comment.
Geddert had agreed to surrender at a sheriff’s office Thursday before a 2:15 p.m. arraignment, but he never showed up, Rossman-McKinney said.
