California child molester who faked death nabbed in Florida


Michael Manning who Chico police say faked his own death to avoid jail for child sexual assault and pornography has been arrested in Monroe County, Florida.
Chico police say that Manning had a hearing scheduled on October 6, 2016, to be sentenced on child sexual abuse, child pornography and other charges but he didn’t show up.
Chico police say a suicide note in Manning’s handwriting was found in a car he rented that was left near Golden Gate Bridge but his body was not found.
Deputies in Florida arrested him May 3 after he identified himself with a fake U.S. passport and U.S. Navy identification card during a burglary investigation.
