Former Ochiltree County Deputy Found Dead Of Apparrent Suicide

A former Ochiltree chief deputy accused of molesting a child was found dead of an apparent suicide just one day after he was released from jail. 68-year-old Frankie C. Humprey was found dead at his home just after 2 p.m., on Friday, according to Sheriff Terry Bouchard. Humprey, according to Bouchard, called a deputy to inform him of his intentions. Minutes later, deputies arrived to find that Humphrey had sustained a gunshot wound to the head. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. A Justice of the Peace ruled it was suicide. Humphrey was arrested on Wednesday on a charge of Indecency with a Child - Sexual Contact, authorities said. He was arraigned on Thursday and was released on a $100,000 bond Thursday morning. Humphrey retired in February 2010 after serving 19 years with the department. He had also served as a board member for the musical school, Conservatory of the Plains. That school now based in Perryton serves students of all ages from elementary to high school, authorities said. The Ochiltree County Sheriff's Office was shocked by the news of Humphrey's allegations and death. "The department is shocked," Bouchard said. "It was the furthest thing from our minds."
