An Ankeny man being investigated in a child pornography case was found dead over the weekend.

Officers found the body of 48-year-old Paul Hildreth at an Ankeny home Sunday afternoon.

Hildreth was charged after investigators found 1.5-million images of child pornography on his personal computers and two hard drives.

An autopsy confirmed Ankeny police’s early suspicions Monday evening saying that Hildreth shot himself in the head.
