PORT CLINTON - The death on Oct. 9 of an Oregon man accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl was an apparent suicide, Dr. Gilbert Bucholz, the Ottawa County coroner, said yesterday.
James Brewer III, 37, of 1057 South Wheeling St., was reported as a missing person on Oct. 9, a day after the allegations were filed with police.
He was found dead later that day of a self-inflicted gunshot wound outside a relative's home in Genoa.
