Five years ago, on the eve of his child molestation trial, Richard E. Howard boarded a Washington state ferry and disappeared. Sometime during the one-hour trip across Puget Sound, Howard, who was out on bail, left his dog and his car and vanished, officials say. His mother told authorities it was a suicide--her son had been despondent about the charges he faced, she said. But when the Coast Guard found no body, investigators were not so sure.

A drifter who faked his own suicide in his native state of Washington and then ended up in San Diego County, where he admits molesting 15 girls, pleaded guilty this week to 91 counts of child molestation in what officials say is a landmark case. Deputy Dist. Atty. John D. Williams calls it the worst case of child molestation ever recorded in San Diego County, where Richard E. Howard--also known as Bob Barret Holder--of Walla Walla, Wash., first showed up in 1989.
