A Frenchman suspected of sexually abusing more than 300 children in Indonesia is believed to have committed suicide while in police custody in Jakarta.
Francois Abello Camille, 65, was arrested last month, and police had found hundreds of explicit videos of children aged 10 to 17 on his laptop.
Jakarta police public relations chief Yusri Yunus said the suspect was found hanging by a wire in the police lockup on Thursday.
“The suspect was then sent to the Kramat Jati Hospital in East Jakarta, and after a few days of treatment, the suspect was confirmed dead at 8pm yesterday,” he said today.
The suspect was arrested while he was with two minors in a hotel room in Jakarta last month.
The suspect was believed to have committed sexual crimes against 305 minors in Indonesia.
