Investigators say they discovered 54-year-old Roger Young dead early Monday in a house in the 3100 block of Stoneleigh Drive in Lansing. He had taken his own life.
The former Scoutmaster was charged last October with nine counts including Criminal Sexual Conduct. He was suspected of sexually assaulting a young boy under the age of 13, the brother of a teenager in Young's Okemos Boy Scouts troop.
Young had been free on bond.
Young had been a Boy Scout leader in the Chief Okemos Council for nearly 20 years. He didn't any criminal history or charges until his October arrest.
