Paulding County Escapee Commits Suicide

Paulding County, Ohio

By: Sheila McCrea

An accused rapist who escaped from Paulding County authorities committed suicide during a standoff with authorities Monday night.

Officers determined that 32 year-old Branden Powell was at his parents home in a rural area near Antwerp. They tried to have Powell peacefully surrender; however, he took his own life with a gunshot wound.

Powell was booked on allegations of rape on July 8.

Early this week, according Paulding County Sheriff's Office, a deputy was transporting Powell on August 4 from a mental institution in Toledo to a the Paulding County Jail. During the ride, the sheriff's office says Powell attacked the deputy and seized his gun before fleeing.

The investigation into Powell’s death from the Monday night standoff is still ongoing.
