DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas police officer charged with sexual assault after being accused of abusing prostitutes has died a suspected suicide.

Sr. Cpl. David Kattner was found dead Friday morning in Little Elm, about 20 miles north of Dallas. A Little Elm police statement said initial investigations show the 47-year-old officer apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

A Dallas police statement expressed condolences to the family.

Kattner was arrested Dec. 21 and faced allegations that he contacted female prostitutes and compelled them to perform sexual acts with him.

Authorities said Kattner, who’d been with the Dallas force for 26 years, was off-duty and working an extra job during the alleged sexual abuse. He was placed on administrative leave following his arrest.
