LAKE COUNTY, Ohio - The Lake County Coroner's office tells FOX 8 Rick Adams has died.
The 20-year-old was arrested March 21 after assaulting a 17-year-old and posting a video to his Facebook page.
“I kinda blacked out,” Adams said previously in an interview with the FOX 8 I-Team. “I saw a 17-year-old molesting a 5-year-old. I wanted to help the young boy and that was all I was thinking about was getting it stopped.”
Adams pleaded guilty April 10.
The 17-year-old was arrested and charged with rape. His case is still pending.
