Priest Founder of Mexican American Cultural Center Commits Suicide in San Antonio TX

A medical examiner’s report has determined that Notre Dame theology professor Father Virgilio Elizondo died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head Monday in his home in San Antonio, Texas.

The 80-year-old Elizondo, who was considered the founder of Latino Theology in the United States, was accused last May of sexually abusing an unidentified boy more than 30 years ago in a lawsuit filed against him, a charge that the priest vehemently denied.

The anonymous plaintiff said that as a child in 1983 he had been abused by the priest when the latter was rector of the Cathedral of San Fernando in San Antonio.
