Newsweek - 04-23


An Ohio man who made national news after he was arrested for attacking a 17-year-old male who was allegedly molesting a 5-year-old boy has died. Ricky Adams, 20, was charged with felony assault after he walked in and allegedly found the teenager with the child’s penis in his mouth in March. Following Adams' arrest, a GoFundMe page was set up by his uncle Jeff Cook to raise money for his legal fees as a sign of support, which went on to attract more than $40,000 in donations.
