PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A 35-year-old dentist suspected in multiple sexual assaults involving juveniles killed himself as Portland police tried to serve a search warrant Monday.
Joshua Luke Moffitt was found dead in the home in the 1400 block of SE 46th Avenue, authorities said. Moffitt was being investigated for the assaults on two victims who are now adults.
Detectives determined Moffitt was a pediatric dentist who was working for a non-profit organization providing dental care for children throughout Oregon. He also lived in Montana and may have done dental work on children on Native American reservations a few years ago, authorities said.
The investigation continues as detectives try to find out if there are other victims.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Portland police at 503.823.0400.
