Suresh Manjanath, of Tarrytown, commits suicide after child porn arrest

A Tarrytown man arrested last week in a child porn sting in Illinois has committed suicide.



Suresh Manjanath, 45, was accused of traveling to Chicago to distribute child porn and have sex with children.



The Illinois Attorney General's Office reports he was released on $1 million bond and returned to New York City.



Authorities say Manjanath jumped to his death in Queens early Sunday morning. Police did not release where he jumped from.
