State Rep. Dan Johnson has died

 SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Just after posting a somber Facebook message, the Bullitt County sheriff's office discovered the body of state Rep. Dan Johnson Wednesday evening.

Johnson, who learned on Monday of a renewed investigation into allegations of sexual molestation of a former church member, committed suicide, according to Bullitt County Sheriff Donnie Tinnell.

The gun used in the incident has been recovered.

The sheriff's office learned of the posting and began work to possibly locate Johnson through his cell phone around 6:30 p.m.
