In an effort to keep the public informed about the progress in this case, the Southern Chester County Regional Police Department announces the conclusion of efforts to locate the wanted subject David A. Sampson. Late Wednesday, August 23, 2017, Sampson was found deceased on an abandoned property, in Franklin Township, Chester County. The death is being investigated by the Pennsylvania State Police, Avondale Station and, while there is no indication of foul play, the cause of death is still pending by the Coroner's Office. While this may conclude prosecutorial efforts, law enforcement and victim services are focusing efforts to offer support to the minor victims, in order to aide in their recovery. Additionally, we want to thank the public for the many tips we received in the past week. We now ask that you respect the privacy of the family, as they cope with all that has transpired. This concludes our statement; no other comments will be forthcoming.
