Former Planned Parenthood Director Commits Suicide Amid Child Porn Investigation

The former director of strategic communications at the Southern New England branch of Planned Parenthood was found dead of an apparent suicide this week following a botched police raid relating to child pornography at his Connecticut home. Tim Yergau, 36, reportedly took his own life five days after authorities accidentally busted down the door of his neighbor’s home, revealing him as a suspect. Police did not publicly name Yergau but identified “the person who died” as central to Special Victims Unit’s child pornography probe. Reports from Yergau’s neighbor and the medical examiner’s office later confirmed the ex-Planned Parenthood staffer’s identity.

“The person who died was definitely the suspect in a child pornography investigation and the person who committed suicide,” New Haven Police Chief Karl Jacobson told The Middletown Press on Wednesday.

While Yergau was not arrested following the botched breach-and-clear, police had obtained a search warrant for his apartment and electronic devices. According to Jacobson, Yergau ended his life once it became clear that the walls were closing in.

“It was an open investigation, so he knew he was going to be arrested.”

At the time of his death, Yergau had been working for the Long Wharf Theatre as their marketing and communications director. According to the theatre, Yergau had previously handled marketing and strategic communications for Planned Parenthood of Southern New England. Until December 2022, the activist maintained an active social media profile, championing left-wing causes and promoting pro-LGBTQ media.

“Excited to announce that today I start a new job on the marketing/communications team at Planned Parenthood of Southern New England,” Yergau wrote in a 2018 Instagram post.

“Excited to be working on issues I’m passionate about: healthcare access, reproductive and sexual health, diversity and inclusion, civic engagement, and voting rights.”

An attempt to serve out a search warrant for Yergau’s apartment on April 6 ended in disaster when police mistakenly raided the home of his innocent neighbor. Stacey Wezenter, a mother of two, says she was traumatized by the experience and recounted officers busting down her door and demanding to know the location of Yergau. Police reportedly realized they had breached the wrong home when they saw children’s toys scattered around the floor.

“They obviously hit the wrong door,” Jacobson admitted to The Middletown Press before adding that his department would face an investigation over the incident.

“Unfortunately, a mistake was made. We feel for the woman and we’re going to do everything we can to make it right.”

“Every time I walk down my hallway, I relive it,” Wezenter told the paper.

“What if I had a gun permit? What if I came down the hallway with a gun? Would I have gotten shot? What if my 4-year-old had woken up? Would they have shot him?” You just don’t do that to people.

I started running down the hallway, it was just like a movie. They had guns and flashlights on me. They put me against the wall and handcuffed me. I was crying and saying, ‘What’s happening?'”

“They literally came up to the third floor,” Wezenter continued. “If they had been watching him, they would have seen my son and I coming and going.”
