A jogger who saved a suicidal teenager from drowning herself in a Connecticut lake was a convicted child molester on the lam from Georgia for six years.
Michael Rogers, 49, said shortly after the rescue that he could not bear to walk away and have the girl’s death on his conscience, and Hamden police said an officer involved in the rescue might have died without his help, too.
Rogers was being held without bond in Connecticut on Wednesday, one day after he was arrested at his sister’s Hamden home on a charge of being a fugitive from justice, police said. Georgia authorities said they planned to seek his extradition.
