He committed suicide and they're keeping it quiet because he, his father (suicide), and grandfather (suicide) have shamed the Constable name too much already. As far as I'm concerned, he got away with his vile crimes against humanity and the world should know he was a weak coward in death as he was in life.
William Howe Constable killed himself and person(s) at that prison should be held accountable for at least negligence if not aiding and abetting his suicide.

He lived very close to me and I would see him quite often.. When he told me that he was vacationing in SouthEast Asia I just thought he was rich...Wish I had put two and two together...

I married in to this sick family. They are a bunch of arrogant rich kids who think they are above the law. They are all damaged and dysfunctional. Shit parents breed shit kids.....I was an outsider but I voiced my opinions regarding his annual trips to asia and was ignored, they are only interested now in the Constable name for what it's worth and don't have any sense of sympathy or empathy for his victims, if they could have got him off with their money or even out of the country they would have done so. They are all sick with serious personality disorders..... just wait for the next generation.

That man is a sick bastard and I agree with Elizabeth above. Those people are the most ridiculous individuals with 0 personality, feelings of emotions, class, or value system. I am sure they have not a care in the world for the innocent child victims in SE Asia. I only wish he could have suffered more in some horrible way, but hopefully he is burning in hell.

If Elizabeth were really part of that family she would inform us how he died. That being said, why is there no accountability as far as the prison officials are concerned? There were two suicides within this turd's immediate family. Why wasn't he on suicide watch? Did he die in an accident? Did someone smuggle substances into the prison for him? Why should his death (as wonderful as it is) be kept confidential when his life was a responsibility of the state?

Judge not least you be judged - the stick you use to measure will be used to measure you....
To expect mercy, be merciful! To expect compassion, be compassionate! To expect forgiveness, forgive!

One blames the molester, but where were the childrens' parents?

Are you going to say that about yourself if someone does that to your kids?

It's sad that some of you would desire to broadly brand the Constable family because of one man's horrible choices, and their tragic reality.

What Howe did is inexcusable. What the Constable name stands for, is beyond integrity, and is defined by a long path of both public and personal influence, directly in line with humanity's role in sustaining the platinum standard for noteworthy character and heart.

Elizabeth, there is no explanation for your comments other than a bitterness that is personal to you alone, and this is all the worth that should be given to your simple harumph above. You were likely very very lucky to know some of the family members who could be and are described as ambassadors for the highest measures of, simply, good. I hope some of it rubbed off on you, to be realized even if only in order to cast off the writhing that led to your post.
