politician and pedophile advocate dies by ‘self-starvation’ in Arizona prison
Nathan Larson, a 41-year-old ex-politician and advocate for child pornography, has died by self-starvation in an Arizona prison while receiving medical care. According to a report from the Maricopa County Medical Examiner, Larson had a history of suicidal ideation and had stopped eating and drinking six weeks prior to his admission to the hospital. The report states that Larson’s death was the result of complications from malnutrition and Wernicke’s Encephalopathy, and the manner of death is recorded as suicide.
Larson had been arrested and charged with several felonies related to soliciting child pornography and other offenses. He had been extradited to Fresno, California after police learned that he had traveled from Virginia to California in 2020 to abduct a 12-year-old girl whom he had groomed online. He was being held at the Fresno County Jail when he stopped eating.
On June 21, Larson was diagnosed with COVID-19 and was treated with remdesivir. He continued to have “profound muscular weakness” and later was put on a ventilator, which he was weaned off on August 14. His health continued to decline until his death on September 18, 2022.
Larson had run a campaign in Virginia to legalize child pornography. He was also known to be a white supremacist. His death has sparked mixed reactions from the public, with some expressing relief that he will no longer be able to harm anyone, while others have criticized the prison system for failing to provide proper care for inmates with mental health issues.
It is important to note that suicide is a complex issue and there are many factors that can contribute to it. It is not always possible to predict or prevent suicide. However, it is crucial that those who are struggling with suicidal thoughts or tendencies receive proper treatment and support. This includes providing access to mental health care and addressing any underlying medical or psychological issues.
In light of Larson’s death, it is also important to recognize the harm caused by advocating for child pornography and other forms of sexual abuse. Child pornography is a form of child abuse and it is never acceptable to advocate for it. It is important to speak out against such harmful ideologies and to support efforts to protect children from abuse.
Overall, the death of Nathan Larson serves as a reminder of the importance of providing proper care for inmates with mental health issues, and the need to speak out against harmful ideologies and advocate for the protection of children from abuse.
