I did a little research via Google…”What happens to the registry when a sex offender passes away?”

Answer: interestingly, not much…

“When asked about Justin’s name remaining on the registry seven years after his suicide, state police spokeswoman Shanon Banner said that names are not removed from the registry unless a family member sends the registry enforcement unit a death certificate.”

So, again…another clear example of how the registry does not work. 7 years going, this deceased person has remained on the registry. Protecting the public from the dead I suppose….
