[FONT=Arial Black]Sexual-Predator Sting Ends in Former Texas Prosecutor’s Suicide
[/FONT]DALLAS, Texas, Nov. 7, 2006 — A sexual-predator sting turned into a different sort of crime scene when a former prosecutor committed suicide as police surrounded his home.
When police arrived, they attempted to serve former Kaufman County District Attorney Louis “Bill” Conradt Jr. with a search warrant for his computer and an arrest warrant.
Police said Conradt attempted to make arrangements over the Internet to have sex with a decoy who was posing as a 13-year-old boy.
He refused to answer the door when they arrived, and was subsequently found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
An NBC camera crew was also outside the house when the gunshot was heard. According to The Dallas Morning News, the sting resulting in Conradt’s arrest warrant was a joint operation between the Internet watchdog group Perverted Justice and NBC’s “Dateline.”
As part of the group’s plan, 22 men seeking sex with children were lured to a house in Murphy, Texas, and arrested. Murphy police said Conradt did not go to the house, but they believed he would.
