Country singer Daniel Lee Martin, 54, ‘kills himself’ after being accused of sexually abusing a child – The Sun

COUNTRY singer Daniel Lee Martin has killed himself in wake of child sex abuse allegations, cops say.

Deputies in Florida were attempting to serve a warrant to the 54-year-old Martin when they found him dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

The warrant, issued out of Tennessee, was for three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, three counts of aggravated sexual battery and one count of solicitation of a minor to commit rape of a child.

"The PSO SWAT team called in to assist, as Martin previously made threats of harm against himself and others," the sheriff's office said.

Martin, also a reality TV star, was arrested last month in Florida in wake of allegations that he masturbated next to a child, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

He was also charged for similar offenses in Tennessee in 2018.

The recording artist is known for such albums as "All That I Am" and "On My Way to You."
