HEBER CITY, Utah, May 30, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — A report of a sexual assault involving a teenage girl prompted a six-hour standoff in Heber City Monday morning that ended with the suspect committing suicide.

Heber City Police Department officers responded to a home near 200 W. Center Street after receiving reports around 2 a.m. of a child sexual assault and aggravated assault involving a gun.

The caller told dispatchers a male adult had drugged and sexually assaulted a teenage girl inside the house, and when confronted, pulled a gun on two of the occupants.

An adult female, two teenagers and one 5-year-old child were safely evacuated from the residence.

Police say the man, 47-year-old James Leo Veyette, remained barricaded inside the residence.

Officers evacuated the homes on West Center Street while the Summit Wasatch Advanced Tactical Team arrived and attempted to negotiate with the Veyette for several hours.

The SWAT team ultimately fired tear gas and stun grenades into the home, before officers made their way inside and found Veyette dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The evacuation order was lifted just after 9 a.m. However, officers were asking anyone else to please avoid the area while the investigation into the incident continued.

  2. I dont understand why this is all over social media before any details are given regarding the supposed sexual assault!!!! I grew up around this man and hr never ever made me feel the least bit uncomfortable! Before boasting about the events that occured before his death yall should have facts and testing results back because he does have family!!!!

  3. I was married to this deviant and violent perv. Sociopath And devil in sheeps clothing is all I can offer. Came off as charismatic family man and the same day we married it was like a different person emerged. Condolences to his poor children and all of the victims of his sick acts. RIP.
