Former Florida equine veterinarian Scott Langton, 42, died from an apparent gunshot wound, a family member we reached late Thursday confirms.
The District Nine Medical Examiner’s Office, which serves Orlando, tells us Langton’s body is in the morgue. Accordingly, a death investigation is underway.
The Florida State Attorney’s Office recently charged Langton with felony sexual battery of a teen. The alleged drugging and rape occurred when Langton’s wife was out of town in November 2013.
A week ago, Seminole County terminated Langton’s participation in drug court stemming from his August driving under the influence conviction. The criminal court ordered him to reappear in the case next month.
We have spoken with the Orange County Sheriff Department and will bring you additional details as they are available.
