Pedophile dies after drinking liquid as sex abuse verdict is read

A Texas pedophile died this week after drinking a mysterious liquid from a water bottle when a jury found him guilty of sexually assaulting children, officials said.

Edward Leclair, 57, was on trial in Denton, Texas, on five counts of sexual abuse and was out on bail pending Thursday’s sentencing.

“While these sentences were being read, he fell on a bottle of water he had [the] Advisory table,” Denton County Assistant District Attorney Jamie Beck told CNN on Friday, adding that the liquid appeared cloudy.

“Our investigator noticed that he was drinking water,” Beck said. “He told the bailiff he might want to check on him. The bailiff did. He was unconscious in the holding cell.”

“Shortly after entering the hold cell, he began to vomit and emergency services were called,” said Leclair’s defense attorney Mike Howard.

Howard said Leclair had a “long drink from a water bottle” while hearing the verdict, but the attorney didn’t know what was in the bottle.

Paramedics attempted to revive Leclair. He was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

An autopsy has been ordered and the cause of death is listed as pending.
