Gehring Suicide

The attorney who represented Manuel Gehring says his apparent suicide today won't make any difference in the search for the bodies of his two young children.

Gehring was awaiting trial on charges that he kidnapped and killed the two children last July, and then buried them somewhere in the Midwest. His body was found early today in his New Hampshire jail cell.

His lawyer, Barbara Keshen, says Gehring had suffered from a deep depression that probably caused him to take his children's lives -- and now his own life.

But she says Gehring had told authorities all he knew about where the bodies might be found. She says Gehring "tried his best."

New Hampshire's attorney general says Gehring's death doesn't eliminate the hopes of finding the bodies of his children -- but it "makes it problematic."

An FBI agent in Ohio -- where a search for the bodies took place -- says if any more leads come in, the search will resume.
