(Newser) – A Washington, DC, police officer who was arrested last week on child porn charges was found dead last night. The body of Marc Washington was pulled from the water at Hains Point, NBC Washington reports. The 32-year-old is accused of visiting a teen girl—while on duty—ordering her to take off her clothes, and taking pictures. He allegedly told her the pictures were for a runaway investigation, ABC 7 reports; the girl had previously been reported missing.

She told her mother, and Washington was arrested hours later; he allegedly had hundreds of other incriminating photos, many of them of domestic violence victims. He was released on house arrest this week with a GPS monitoring device that he was still wearing when his body was found; his court documents were found in a rental car nearby.
