Pastor facing sex charge found dead in storage unit

An Indiana pastor accused of trying to have sex with a minor died in what officials believe to be a suicide, Cobb County police said.

David James Brown’s body was discovered about noon Monday in a unit at Attic Self Storage near Marietta, Cobb police Sgt. Dana Pierce told the Lexington Herald Leader in Kentucky.

Brown, 46, was the senior pastor of First Christian Church in Jeffersonville, Ind. He was arrested June 15 after he arranged to meet with who he believed to be an underage boy to "engage in sex acts with him," Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear's office told the newspaper. Brown planned the meeting over the messaging app Kik and agreed to meet the boy in Frankfort, Ky.

When he arrived, he found that he was actually corresponding with an undercover cyber crime officer, officials said.

The body of the former pastor was taken to the Cobb County Medical Examiner’s office for an autopsy.
