From the New York Post [caution, tabloid]:
DALLAS — A Texas priest who’s accused of molesting teens and stealing from his parish has gone missing.
St. Cecilia Catholic Church officials believe the Rev. Edmundo Paredes may have fled to his native country of the Philippines, The Dallas Morning News reported. He’d been a pastor at the church for 27 years. Dallas police have found the sexual abuse allegations to be credible, said Bishop Edward Burns. Paredes is no longer allowed to function or present himself as a priest, he said.
