'Uncle' Ed Muscare, ex-Kansas City TV show host and convicted sex offender, dead at 79

Former Kansas City television host and convicted sex offender "Uncle" Ed Muscare died in prison Monday night. Word comes from Muscare's wife, Marion, who posted the above YouTube video Monday night saying Muscare died due to lung cancer (h/t: Fox 4). Muscare was 79.

In 2009, Muscare resurfaced, posting bizarre videos to YouTube, including one of a dog suckling on his bare stomach. This, of course, earned him Internet fame, dubbed by some as the "Singing Sex Offender."

In January 2010, a Florida judge sentenced Muscare to five years in prison for violating his probation for using the Internet and possessing alcohol.

Muscare was arrested in 1986 for molesting a 14-year-old Florida boy. He reportedly ran into trouble after moving to South Carolina and failing to register as a sex offender. In an interview with an Orlando TV station, Muscare said: "I would never sexually offend again, but we can't help but sin. We're all human beings."
