It looks like that dad who killed the man he caught abusing his daughter last week won’t be charged.
A grand jury in Lavaca County, Texas didn’t return an indictment against the man, officials said at a press conference.
“The substantial amount of evidence showed that the witness statements and the father’s statement and what the father had observed was in fact what had happened that day,” Lavaca County District Attorney Heather McMinn told reporters.
The father isn’t being named to protect the identity of his daughter.
The father called 911 after he attacked the man and he and his family did attempt save the life of alleged attacker Jesus Mora Flores “despite what they had just witnessed,” McMinn added.
Flores, 47, was not an acquaintance of the family.
The father and his family were holding a horse event last weekend at their ranch.
The man’s 5-year-old daughter had gone off to the barn to feed some chickens, according to the little girl’s grandfather.
When the father heard screaming, he headed toward his daughter and found a man molesting her, according to Sheriff Micah Harmon.
The father stopped the abuse and punched the man in his head repeatedly, killing him.
On the 911 call, the father can be heard telling the operator, “I need an ambulance. This guy was raping my daughter and I beat him up. And I don’t know … I don’t know what to do.”
Later, when the operator says, “I’m working on it if you can hold on,” the emotional dad says, “The guy’s dying on me!”
The girl’s grandfather and aunt both administered CPR, to no avail.
