LAKELAND, Fl. – A Florida man was arrested on Tuesday for the drugging and rape of an autistic teen, Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) officials said.
Alain Luis Forget, 58, of Lakeland, was arrested on charges of lewd and lascivious battery on a child less than 16 and two counts of delivery of a controlled substance to a minor. The 15-year-old boy was given the permission of his grandmother to go with Forget to a home in rural Hamilton County on December 27, 2018. The home belonged to Forget’s deceased father, FDLE officials said.
Two days later Forget called an ambulance and reported that the boy was not responsive. The boy was pronounced dead at the hospital in January 2018. The autopsy revealed Xanex and Morphine in the boy’s system. The boy’s cause of death was drug toxicity and pneumonia, the medical examiner’s report said.
As part of the investigation, interviews were conducted of the victim’s family members, as well as those familiar with Forget. Additional sexual abuse allegations were made against Forget during the interviews.
Forget was booked into the Lake County Jail on Tuesday. The case is ongoing and there may be additional charges that Forget will be faces.
Agents believe there could be additional victims. Forget has residences in Lakeland and Sorrento (Lake County), Florida. If you have any information about Alain Luis Forget, please contact FDLE’s Live Oak Field Office at (800) 226-5630.
