Authorities say the body of 43-year-old Daniel Fischer of Hershey has been found in an irrigation ditch. Fischer was a suspect in the sexual assaults of several young girls.

The body was found Sunday by family members. Fischer's vehicle was found nearby.

Lincoln County Sheriff Jerome Kramer says the cause of Fischer's
death is under investigation.

Fischer was charged April 4 with three counts of sexual assault
of children and released on bond. When officers went to arrest him
Wednesday on another charge, they couldn't find him.

Documents filed by police in Lincoln County Court says five
girls ages 7 to 15 reported being assaulted by Fischer at his home.

Fischer's wife, 38-year-old Deanna, has been charged with child
abuse. Authorities say she photographed one of the assaults.
