On the day before he was due in court, a convicted child rapist and paedophile was found hanged.

When he was reported missing from his village home on 19 October, Richard Saunders, 57, sparked a police search.

In his blue Volvo, he was last seen driving away from his semi-detached house in Wyre Piddle, Worcestershire.

The next day, in the Briardene area of Whitley Bay, Tyne and Wear, his body was found 250 miles away.

It has now been announced that Saunders was scheduled to appear on October 21 at Warwick Crown Court on allegations of a number of sexual crimes, including raping a child under 13.

He was also accused of indecent assault on a child under the age of 14, trying to rape a girl, and sexual intercourse with a teenage boy.

The claims took place in the early 2000s, Warwick Crown Court heard.

He was also convicted of more sexual assaults dating back to the 1970s and 80s.

They included charges of indecently abusing and inciting a child under the age of 14 to commit an act of gross indecency against him.

Adam Western, a lawyer, said: “On October 20, this defendant died.”

He was sent here for serious sexual harassment for non-recent reasons.

Judge Barry Berlin said, “So Done”.
