An Ohio man, who was arrested last month for beating up a 17-year-old who he allegedly found molesting a five-year-old boy, has been found dead following a suspected drug overdose.
Richard Adams, 20, recently pleaded guilty to a felony charge of assault in relation to the incident in Eastlake, Cleveland, on March 21.
