Former ESPN reporter Adrian Karsten dead from apparent suicide
UPI News Service, 09/05/2005
Former ESPN reporter Adrian Karsten, who was supposed to report to federal prison in Minnesota for tax evasion, apparently killed himself instead.
Karsten, 45, was supposed to report to prison in Rochester, Minn., Thursday but never showed up, the New York Post reported Monday.
His former wife told the newspaper Sunday Karsten was found dead in his Green Lake, Wis., home and investigators labeled the death a suicide.
Karsten pleaded guilty in July to charges of failing to file tax returns from 1999 to 2002 when he made about $607,000 as a sideline reporter for ESPN college football games.
He was sentenced to 11 months in prison and nine months home confinement.
