42-year-old Acworth, Georgia man Richard Areingdale had been in the employ of the Georgia House of Representatives since 1999 and was involved in the operation of the House website.
The Magistrate Court of Cobb County issued a warrant for Richard’s arrest on Tuesday on charges of rape, statutory rape, incest, two counts of child molestation aggravated sodomy and three counts of child molestation from offenses which occurred over a period of eight years. The Cobb County Sheriff’s department tried to serve the warrant and arrest him twice last night but both times that they went to the house he was not there. They had already executed a search warrant at the house earlier Tuesday so he knew that they would be eventually coming for him.
Around 8:30 this morning a custodian in the Coverdell Legislative Building next to the Capitol in Atlanta found Areingdale dead of apparent suicide in the 5th floor press office.
