TX Police Chief Suicides After Sex Assault Warrant

Officials say the police chief of a small Central Texas town shot and killed himself when Texas Rangers arrived at his home.

McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara told local news stations that Rangers met Marlin Police Chief Nathan Sodek on the porch of his Bruceville-Eddy home around noon Friday to serve him a warrant.

McNamara says Sodek, 30, turned and ran back into his house, got a handgun and killed himself.

McNamara says the Rangers had been investigating Sodek on sexual assault allegations.

Sodek was named interim police chief in October 2018 and was given the job permanently last November.

Home to about 1,700 residents, Bruceville-Eddy is 18 miles southwest of Waco and 20 miles west of Marlin, which is home to about 5,600 residents.

I wonder if the Rangers told him that before he was taken in, he could have a minute to, uh....go to the bathroom. 


Save the taxpayers a bunch of money....
