A state trooper accused of sexually assaulting a woman early Sunday was found dead a day later of an apparent suicide in a Devens hotel room, Brockton’s top cop said.
Trooper Gregory J. Jasinskas, 40, was under investigation for allegations of sexually assaulting a Brockton woman behind a store on Route 24 in Avon early Sunday, Brockton Police Chief Emanuel Gomes told the Herald. He confirmed his department was drawn into the investigation Monday after state police asked his officers to go to the alleged victim’s home and “refer her to the state police.” Brockton police officers also assisted in the hunt for Jasinskas on Monday after authorities received reports he intended to harm himself, Gomes said.
