Manassas detective commits suicide during his arrest for molesting two boys

First, Detective Abbot was leading a teen sexting case and wanted to take photos of teenage genitals as evidence…

Then boys from the youth hockey program the detective coached in his free time came forward to the police department on Monday with inappropriate text messages and allegations of inappropriate contact over the past two years.

As officers came for his arrest, detective David Abbott shot himself in front of his home.
