Father, We’ve Got Some Questions

priest-ascension-valdes-croppedFather Rafael Padilla, a Bastrop, Texas priest was found by police last week standing in the doorway of a Southtown motel wearing only his underwear, the victim of an apparent assault. But there are still many questions police can’t seem to get answers to in the case. Padilla, age 42, was unable to tell police who may have caused the swelling, cuts and bruises on his face and arms. He also couldn’t explain to police why there was a cold, unopened beer, condoms and lubricating jelly inside the motel room or who the items could belong to.

 

He checked into the Relax Inn about 11:30 a.m. and hotel staff told police that 30 minutes later Padilla called them asking for an ambulance. When questioned by paramedics about how he was injured he said “he thought he was dreaming and didn’t know what was going on.” Christian González, spokesman for the diocese in Austin, confirmed that Padilla, who serves as pastor of Ascension Parish in Bastrop, and that the diocese is investigating the incident independently of the ongoing SAPD investigation.
