On December 27, 2017, with the permission of the child’s grandmother, Forget took the 15-year- old autistic boy to a residence in rural Hamilton County.  The residence had belonged to Forget’s deceased father.  Two days later, the child was discovered unresponsive, and Forget called an ambulance.  The child was pronounced dead at a local hospital. In January of 2018, an autopsy revealed the victim had morphine and Xanex in his system.  The medical examiner determined the child died from pneumonia and drug toxicity.  

Agents conducted interviews with the victims’ family members and others who were familiar with Forget.  Agents believe Forget gave the child drugs and sexually battered him prior to his death.  During interviews, additional sexual abuse allegations were made against Forget. 

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. Forget was arrested today and booked into the Lake County Jail.  The case is ongoing and there could be additional charges.  Office of the State Attorney, 3rd Judicial Circuit, will prosecute this case.
