Sheriff: Dad kills daughter's alleged attacker

Sheriff: Dad kills daughter's alleged attacker

Tuesday, June 12, 2012 10:32 AM EST

SHINER, TX (AP) - A father beat to death with his hands a man who tried molesting his 4-year-old daughter after the little girl was heard screaming on the family's rural Texas ranch, authorities said Monday.

Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon said the father, whose name has not been released, is unlikely to be arrested for Saturday's killing and that no evidence so far has led investigators to doubt his story.

"There doesn't appear to be any reason other than what he told us," Harmon said.

Harmon said the victim was a 47-year-old man from Gonazles with no apparent prior criminal history. His name continued to be withheld Monday because authorities still hadn't tracked down any of his family.

The victim was an "acquaintance" of the father who had come to help care for some horses, Harmon said. He did not know how long the two men may have known each other. The girl was taken to a hospital to be examined and has since been released, Harmon said.

The father called police late Saturday afternoon and told them he attacked a man caught trying to sexually assault his daughter, Harmon said. The alleged attack happened near a barn where some horses were being kept.

"In the course of trying to get her away from him, and protect her, he struck the subject several times in the head and the subject died," Harmon said.

Harmon said a grand jury will decide what, if any, charges the father will face.

The victim's body was sent to the Travis County medical examiner for an autopsy.

The ranch near Shiner is about 130 miles west of Houston. Killings are rare in rural Lavaca County. Harmon said his office has only investigated six since in his eight years as sheriff.

Molesters justice! From what I have read elsewhere, father caught the molester in act? If true, I fully accept that hand made death penalty

Pretty much only case that I accept lynch mob style justice though. When caught in act and there is absolutely no question of quilt. The perpetrator was going to get the ultimate penalty anyways.

Excellent to learn that Texas law is mercifull for "killer" in such rare case

Re: Sheriff: Dad kills daughter's alleged attacker

Good, if you have issues with children throw yourself from the 8th floor or get castrated. If you try to sexually assault a little child, deal with the consequences, one of them is being beaten to death by his/her father.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

I wonder if there will be any more developments in this story.

But if it's accurate, then hell yes. Go Dad.

Re: Sheriff: Dad kills daughter's alleged attacker

The case has been referred to a grand jury, although the evidence that has been publicly discussed seems to support the father's story.

Unlike certain other cases, it is interesting to note that in a case where a persons actions have led to the death of another, the authorities actually seem to be conducting an investigation.
