A 43-year-old man suspected of child sexual assault was found dead on Aug. 31 in Laie, 13 days after the crimes were allegedly committed, police said Tuesday.

A CrimeStoppers bulletin publicized on Aug. 22 that Jesse Puaa had allegedly sexually assaulted someone’s children.

Police said a man asked Puaa to babysit his children on Aug. 18. The children later told their father that Puaa sexually assaulted them.

Puaa had been wanted on suspicion of first-degree sexual assault and two counts of third-degree sexual assault.

CrimeStoppers coordinator Sgt. Chris Kim said that Puaa’s body was found floating in a river in Laie. Police are awaiting results of an autopsy report as to the cause of death.

The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office said that no information was available Tuesday in this case.
