TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say a man suspected of committing several recent rapes in Tulsa has died after being in a coma following an auto accident.

Police say DNA and other evidence linked Desmond Campbell to at least seven sexual assaults in the city that began June 5. Investigators say Campbell died Tuesday after being in a coma since being injured in a June 29 car crash.

Police say they believe Campbell was leaving the scene of his last attack on a woman when he crashed his vehicle. Authorities said during a Tuesday news conference that items belonging to some of the victims were found Campbell’s car.
