Temecula, CA – Just starting to trend is the story of a perp detective named Abbott, who was the lead detective in a child pornography investigation last year in which a Manassas City teen was charged with sending explicit video of himself to his girlfriend. In order to establish that the teen was the person in the video, Abbott and Prince William prosecutors obtained a search warrant to take a photo of the teen’s erect penis, for comparison with the explicit video. In another case he refused to press charges against a girl's rapist.

David Edward Abbott, 39, of Gainesville, Virginia, was a Manassas City detective. He had also served on the Northern Virginia-Washington, D.C. Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Police tried to serve him with warrants yesterday after a quick investigation, but he refused to surrender, authorities said. Believing Abbott was armed, police began to evacuate nearby homes. At about 7 a.m., as detectives spoke to Abbott, he pulled out a gun and shot himself, police said. Abbott was pronounced dead at the scene, a townhome he shared with his sister in Gainesville, Va.

The search and arrest warrants were for having inappropriate conduct with two victims while Abbott was a long-time coach with the Prince William Hockey Club -- which has since become the Potomac Patriots hockey league -- and that is where he met his two alleged victims. Police said Abbott made contact with the first victim when the boy was 11 years old. During the one-day investigation, police discovered a second victim, whom Abbott contacted when the boy was 13 years old.

Meanwhile the Hockey League made this statement: “"The Potomac Patriots organization is saddened by the events that transpired today relating to the passing of Coach David Abbott," the statement reads. "We are taking steps to ensure that the needs and well being of the club's children, families and staff are being attended to at this time. Due to the ongoing investigation into the circumstances surrounding Mr. Abbott’s death, we are unable to comment about this matter any further at this time.”

The regional Internet Crimes Task Force and Manassas City Police said they are both cooperating with Prince William police in an ongoing investigation into Abbott's alleged crimes. Both refused to comment further.

Meanwhile the PWC and MCP made this statement, “In despite of these recent developments regarding the serious allegations against him, we are grateful for the contributions Det. Abbott made during his time with Manassas City Police, to include the prosecution and conviction of hundreds of criminals. His family and peers request privacy during this time as we grieve and struggle to accept the realities of such a loss. ” 

Rumours have the police union requesting these words for his honorable burial: “What a true Hero !!
He died in the line of Duty taking out a Child predator.”

  1. What a depraved monster. The police union request, if true, is even more sickening than the perp/cop himself shame on them. What is even more sickening is the Potomac Patriots administrations spin, covering up and punishing the victims and families of those that report abuse in the teams and among incompetent coaches. Yes, plural. And the statement that they broadcast to members stating that USA Hockey was proud of their handling of the situation shows that the spin and damage control staff are out in force, or they are clueless about the dysfunctional, self protective, and retaliation culture that exists in that program. Yes, we know first hand. Died in the line of duty my ass, the piece of trash took the easy way out, but the world is better off without the likes of people like him.
