Man charged with child pornography found dead

DUBUQUE (AP) -- Police say a Dubuque man who was expected to appear in federal court on child pornography charges last week was discovered dead in his home.

Police said they discovered the body of Thomas Ayers at his home on Monday. The 45-year-old was indicted in August on two counts of receiving child pornography.

Dubuque Assistant Police Chief Terry Tobin says the death investigation does not appear to involve foul play. Investigators are awaiting a ruling from the State Medical Examiner's Office.
