Death of suspected molester apparent suicide

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) -- Investigators say the death of a man accused of repeatedly raping and molesting unconscious girls appears to have been a suicide.<br /> <br /> Documents released this week under Georgia's open records law show the Georgia Bureau of Investigation determined that Matthew Coniglio died of asphyxiation in an apparent suicide inside a Savannah jail. The agency found no evidence of foul play.<br /> <br /> Law enforcement officials accused Coniglio of recording himself raping and molesting girls who appear to be unconscious. Authorities found 56 cassette tapes in his Pooler home.<br /> <br /> Charged with possessing child pornography, the 46-year-old suspect apparently hanged himself inside a cell on April 20. He died without giving investigators information that might help them identify the victims.<br /> <br /> FBI agents are still seeking to get in touch with potential victims.<br />
