Authorities are investigating whether a pastor accused of rape has violated other victims. Today Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño spoke to FOX 2 about the case.
You may remember the story of a teen claiming the father of her child is the family’s pastor who raped her.
“There’s evidence he did violate her, he did rape her,” said Guadalupe “Lupe” Treviño, Hidalgo County Sheriff.
She waited months to speak out against Fidel Yerena Flores, 31 years old, a Pastor of “Clama a Mi”, a Pentecostal Church in Alamo.
“The DNA test proves Flores is the father, 99.9% the father,” said Sheriff Treviño.
While Flores is in county jail on a $100,000 bond, officials are working on a second part of the investigation.
Sheriff Treviño says testimonies and clear evidence indicate there are three other possible victims, also members of the church, who might be working up north right now.
Federal agencies are involved due to Flores’ legal status.
“He’s an illegal alien, if he gets out on bond, ICE will hold him in custody,” said Sheriff Treviño.
If you have any information, you are asked to call Hidalgo County Crime Stoppers at 956-668-8477.
We will stay on top of this case as it continues.
