SANDOVAL: Man featured on page 3 of current issue found dead of gunshot woundPosted by Jack Howser on Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 @ 6:43 pm.
MARION CO., Ill. - The latest man to be accused of sexual assault of underage children in Marion County has apparently taken his own life.
Reports indicate that Darin Brandt, 48, of Sandoval, was found by family members, deceased in the back yard of his home located on Ruby Road yesterday morning (Tuesday, February 14, 2017) at about 8 a.m.
The Marion County Coroner found that there was a single gunshot wound to the head that appeared to have been self-inflicted.
Brandt had been arrested and charged January 25 of this year with two counts of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault, both Class X felonies. The alleged victims, it's been revealed, were two little boys, both under the age of 13 and both being kids over whom Brandt had position of authority, supervision or trust. That facet of the case was not made clear, but since Brandt was a school board member, it could've been any kid at the school in Sandoval.
Brandt was free on bond and was also still on the ballot in Marion County for the position he was seeking to be re-elected to on April 4.
