GRAND RAPIDS, Wis. (WSAU) - A former Wisconsin Rapids police officer under investigation for child sex crimes has taken his own life.
Grand Rapids police say they found the body of 41-year-old Steven Lowe in the back of his truck 10:30 Monday morning. Wood County Coroner Garry Kronstadt pronounced Lowe dead at the scene but no other information on how he died has been released. An autopsy is set for the morning.
Earlier this month, Lowe was taken off the job and then resigned after state investigators accused him of posing as a girl online to get nude photos of teenage boys.
The death is under investigation, and no other information is being released.
