North Carolina principal Richard Knight, 35, raped a 12-year-old female student at school. Richard went on the run and was found dead today in Orange County from an apparent suicide.

Richard was the principle at Dillard Academy Charter School in Goldsboro, NC. Police learned of the student’s allegations last Thursday afternoon and obtained a warrant Friday charging Richard with statutory rape and a sex act and indecent liberties with a female student.

Two hunters found Richard's body today in a wooded area and called 911.

The hunters’ deer cameras recorded Mr. Knight in the wooded area at approximately 12:36 a.m. on Friday morning. He is alone in the video and appears to be carrying a blanket. Further investigation led to the discovery of Mr. Knight’s Chevrolet Cruze at the Petro Mart on Buckhorn Road. No foul play is suspected in connection with Mr. Knight’s death.
