OREM, Utah (AP) -- Orem police say a man under investigation in a child sexual-abuse case was found dead in a camper at his home by SWAT team officers and it appears he had killed himself.

Police Captain Steve Clark says the man's wife left the home a few days earlier, but tried to return yesterday. She found that the locks changed and the windows screwed shut.

The woman then started receiving text messages on her cell phone from her husband indicating that he needed to say goodbye to their four children.

She notified police, who were unsuccessful at getting any response from inside the home.

The SWAT team got no response from the camper, even after throwing in a phone through a window.

Officers knocked down the camper's door, threw in a flash bomb and entered to find the man dead.

Clark would not say how the man killed himself or estimate how long he had been dead.
