A former Catholic priest convicted of abusing children was found dead hanging in his home in Bolivia, police said Thursday.

Eduardo Revich was found guilty of abusing 18 children and sentenced to 15 years prison in April 2011. He was serving his sentence under house arrest as he appealed the ruling.

Revich was found hanging in the town of Tarabuco, said Mario Moyano, the head of police for the Chuquisaca region. “One of the first theories is that he took his own life,” Moyano said.

Revich had been sentenced for abusing the minors when he headed a Catholic charity center for poor youths and infants between 2002 and 2007.

After the charges were filed the Church closed down the youth center and suspended Revich.

According to the Catholic radio station Fides, Revich was facing new abuse charges.

About victimsofrapebythercc

The Catechism offers a clear moral teaching: "Rape is the forcible violation of the sexual intimacy of another person. It does injury to justice and charity. Rape deeply wounds the respect, freedom, and physical and moral integrity to which every person has a right. It causes grave damage that can mark the victim for life. It is always an intrinsically evil act. Graver still is the rape of children committed by parents (incest) or those responsible for the education of the children entrusted to them." (no. 2356) Note that rape is "an intrinsically evil act," meaning that it is evil at its very root, nothing justifies it, and it is objectively a mortal sin. An evil act was done against me, a crime, by a priest at St Thomas More Parish in Durham, NH. An evil and a crime I will no longer keep silent about. Those who perpetrate crimes against children, especially those of the Roman Catholic Church, should all be punished for their crimes against children. Anything less would be criminal.
