The composer who became most famous for his song, "You Light Up My Life," Joseph Brooks, was found dead Sunday of an apparent suicide in his New York City apartment.

According to Popeater, a police spokesman said that at around 12:30 p.m., a friend found Brooks at his home with a plastic bag around his head and a towel wrapped around his neck. A helium tank that had a tube connecting it with the bag was found in the area.

An Associated Press report on ABC News says that Brooks had been awaiting a trial on charges of sexually assaulting over a dozen women. He was charged in 2009 with 82 counts of sexual assault.
