Country singer found dead after child sex charges

A Nashville-area country singer who was awaiting trial on child sex charges has killed himself after an arrest on similar allegations in Florida and a failure to go to court prompted a new warrant that would have dragged him back to Tennessee.

Daniel Lee Martin, 54, was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot at a home in New Port Richey, Florida, on Friday afternoon, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.

Pasco deputies discovered Martin’s suicide while attempting to serve him the Tennessee warrant, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office. Deputies tried to contact Martin, but after he did not respond, a SWAT team entered the home and found his body.

Williamson County District Attorney Kim Helper says Martin was supposed to show up for a court hearing in his sex crimes case on Friday morning. The hearing had been called to discuss revoking Martin’s pre-trial release in light of a recent arrest in Florida.

“He did not appear,” Helper says “And we knew he was in Florida, so we notified the authorities in Pasco County that we had a new warrant for him to be picked up.”
