Sex offender dead after three-day siege

A THREE day siege at a Melbourne home ended in the death of fugitive sex offender Antonio Loguanico on Sunday night.  

Throughout the weekend police sent robots into the Glenroy home and blew sirens through the windows to keep the man known as "Mad Dog" awake.  

Victorian Police Superintendent Dean Stevenson said Loguancio had told them he was fearful of returning to jail.  

According to the Herald, a series of "loud bangs" were heard at the home late Sunday afternoon.  

Deputy Commissioner Tim Cartwright told reporters police located a man's body at the back of the home.  

He described the situation as a "tragedy" and "not the outcome police had hoped for".  

An alert was issued by police early last week after Loguancio, who had a long history of depraved sexual violence, breached his supervision order.
