The former chief whip and environment minister had vowed to clear his name before his death.
Former Welsh Government minister Carl Sargeant, 48, (pictured with his wife Bernie, 48, and children Jack, 23, and Lucy, 25) is believed to have taken his own life at home in Connah's Quay, North Wales Labour sources have said that hours before his death he had told friends he was still unaware what the claims were because party officials refused to tell him.
Mr Sargeant had not been arrested, Mail Online understands. We loved him so very much,' it said.'He was the most kind and caring husband, father, son and friend.'We are devastated beyond words, and we know our grief will be shared by all those who knew and loved him. Family members hugged each other on the drive of the mid-terrace former council house where Mr Sargeant lived, round the corner from the school where his wife works as a teaching assistant, as a black private ambulance left the property, guarded by police.
A keen football fan, Mr Sargeant was president of FC Nomads of Connah's Quay, the town where he lived all his life and where he was found dead.
He was married to Bernie and they had two children, Lucy and Jack.
Eight Tory MPs and three Labour MPs have been embroiled in allegations of inappropriate behaviour.
