A grand jury declined to bring the dad up on charges.
On Tuesday, a grand jury refused to indict the father, whose name is being kept under wraps to protect the identity of his little girl (her age was being reported as 4 last week). He killed Jesus Mora Flores, a family acquaintance, at a barbecue held at the family’s ranch earlier this month after finding him sexually molesting his daughter behind a barn. The father pulled Flores, 47, off his screaming daughter, then beat him. When he realized the extent of the man’s injuries, he phoned 911 in a panic. “He’s going to die!” the father yelled at the dispatcher. “He’s going to f—— die!”
Investigators confirmed that the scenario played out as it had been described by the father and witnesses. The girl was taken to a hospital and examined, where forensic evidence indicated she’d been sexually abused. Emergency responders found Flores with his pants and underwear pulled down.
