FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - The man who offered miniature train rides to kids in his backyard in Keller has been killed in jail.

Clinton Simpson, 76, was killed in the Tarrant County Jail Wednesday.

Simpson confessed to molesting at least 12 kids. He was found incompetent to stand trial.

Simpson spent most of the past ten years confined to state hospitals, but he was killed about 3:00 a.m. Wednesday at the Tarrant County Jail, according to officials. 

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner says Simpson was killed by someone else and died from "blunt force injuries of the head."

David Flores, 42, of Fort Worth is charged with Simpson’s murder and was arraigned Wednesday.

The Texas Rangers are investigating the case.
