Suspect in Kidnapping Case Dies of Cancer

Dyersburg, Dyer County (WVLT/AP) - The bizarre case against a former live-in babysitter in Dyersburg has ended with the suspect's death.

The babysitter, known as Erica Sadowski, took two young girls shopping back in march and never returned.

Police issued an Amber Alert and found the children unharmed and discovered Erica Sadowski was biologically a man.

A Dyer County grand jury indicted her on two counts of attempted kidnapping.

But, Sadowski has apparently died of brain cancer at his family's home in Delaware.

The Dyer County District Attorney's Office says they were aware Sadowski was ill.
