No arrests have been made in the case. A grand jury will determine what, if any charges will be filed.

Someone should be working to determine what kind of rewards this guy is going to receive. He prevented something worse from happening to his daughter as well as protecting the rest of society from this guy every harming another child again.

Why would any charges need to be filed. The father rid the world of vermin, and saved taxpayers a huge amount of money.

Any decent "next of kin" will deny any relationship with the deceased. A posthumous disowning, if you will.

Here in California, they would have tried the father for murder.

A few years back a guy in Detroit took his son to an empty lot and executed him for child molesting.

I expect nothing less than autopsy finding death from natural causes. Unless they can’t seem to locate the body. Things can get lost, y’know.

Was it the father’s daughter or the molester’s daughter. The headline is confusing. But the man who killed the creep was right to do so even if she wasn’t either one’s daughter.

Jeez, you'd think the birthplace of the English language would get it right. The ‘’victim’’ here is the 4 year-old child. The guy beaten to death is the ''perpetrator''.

Worse, "The Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office is expected to perform an autopsy on the victim to determine what caused his death."

Why waste the money to "determine the cause of his death"?

The cause of his death is that he was Evil and the poor Dad was righteous.

The very last paragraph seems to make it clear (finally!) that the rescuer is the girl's father.

But you are right. F- for the headline writer, and F- for the copy writer.

Meanwhile, back in Texas, double A+ for the rescuer of that little girl.

Really? I thought he tripped over a barn cat.

Well, that’s what I’d tell the court if I were subpoenaed as a witness for the prosecution, anyhow.

I was going to post the same comment, but decided to read through the comments first to see if anyone else noticed that up=down, right=wrong, perp=victim.

My great grandmother told me about a child molester they caught in the area she lived around 1910. She said the menfolk took him on a midnight tour of the steelworks and showed him the smelter.

She said he must have left town because nobody ever saw him again.

Let’s see if the ACLU or La Raza say anything. I sure hope they do and then get slammed back to the stone age. Or maybe Obamagabe will interject something.

I’m glad to see this guy is from Texas. There’s no way in hell a grand jury from Texas will indict him. Any other state, I might worry.

I guess, with any homicide, you have to have at least a perfunctory investigation, but after they get that out of the way, if the story checks out, give the man a medal.

Well, this is in Texas so I wouldn’t expect the prosecutors to bring charges. If they did it would be a waste of the tax payers’ money since he would never be found guilty of anything. This is the kind of case that would scream out, justifiably, for jury nullification.

Back in ‘42 when nearly all the Sheriff’s deputies were gone to the Army, we had a guy who was molesting his own daughters. A bunch of the local men, mostly farmers, got together and had a “talk” with him.

He must have been very sorry for what he had done ‘cause the overworked sheriff found him the next day, hanging from a tree limb. The sheriff called it suicide alright, but did comment on the rope around his wrists. It was some of the same stuff he had around his neck.

All the people who ‘witnessed’ this suicide are long gone now, so I can tell you that my dad was with the group that went to talk to him. Dad was sober when he left the house and sober when he came home, but he did a lot of drinking before he went to bed.

And probably the daughter for prostitution.

He’s not a victim. He’s a dead dirt-bag.

A father that discovers a man molesting his four-year-old daughter and does not feel the need to beat the molester to death is a monster. The one that does, and even succeeds, is a hero. He is a hero in his daughter's eyes and in the eyes of every other father of daughters. May God bless him and ease any qualms of conscious he may have.
