SJ - February 25, 2021
Former USA gymnastics coach John Geddert killed himself on Thursday just hours after he was charged with 24 felonies, including human trafficking and sexual assault. The 63-year-old was found dead at a highway rest stop.
Investigations into Geddert started back in February 2018 after complaints about his abusive coaching style came to light during disgraced Dr. Larry Nassar's sentencing hearing.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel confirmed that Geddert took his own life Thursday afternoon, calling his death "a tragic end to a tragic story for everyone involved."
Michigan state police confirmed that Geddert's body was found at an interstate highway rest stop at 3:24 p.m. ET.
Well that's one way to settle things. He knew he was likely going away for a longtime and decided that was the end of the story.
These stories are normally a tragedy from start to finish and this one isn't any different.
