A Texas father who beat the man raping his daughter to death in 2012 was not charged in the justifiable killing.
As The Inquisitr reported earlier, the father who beat his child’s rapist to death did not have to face criminal charges or court following the harrowing incident — in which the assault in progress was halted by the distraught man.
The dad’s identity has never been revealed so as not to violate the privacy of the young victim, but the alleged rapist, 47-year-old Jesus Mora Flores, was named even in initial reports about the assault.
Back in June 2012, less than two weeks after Flores died in the course of the attack on the little girl, a Texas jury opted not to indict the father for intervening and protecting his little girl.
WBTV reveals upsetting details about the attack and what prompted the girl’s father to resort to physical force to save his daughter:
“The man found 47-year-old Jesus Mora Flores and his daughter inside. Neither were wearing any underwear, according to Lavaca County sheriff’s deputies. The father, whose name is not being released to protect the girl’s identity, beat Flores unconscious. The man tried calling 911, but Flores died from his injuries.”
The Daily Mail re-reported the story about the father’s fatal beating of his daughter’s rapist, though it is unclear if any new developments in the case have since occurred to prompt new coverage in the case.
The piece quotes Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon as indicating the dad was “very remorseful,” adding:
“You have a right to defend your daughter. The girl’s father acted in defense of his third person. Once the investigation is completed we will submit it to the district attorney who then submits it to the grand jury, who will decide if they will indict him.”
As we later learned, the jury opted not to indict the unnamed father for the rapist’s death at his hands more than a year ago.
