Dallas Catholic Diocese Investigation

 

In August of 2018, the Child Exploitation Squad of the Dallas Police Department received information regarding sexual abuse allegations against a priest who previously worked in Dallas named Edmundo Paredes.  This information came from the Dallas Catholic Diocese and the investigation of the allegations led to the issuance of an arrest warrant for Mr. Paredes.

Over the last several months, detectives have conducted several interviews with possible victims, witnesses, and suspects as well as attending multiple meetings with the Diocese and their attorneys. 

In addition to the allegations against Mr. Paredes, detectives are investigating at least 5 additional allegations of child abuse against other suspects.  These investigations stem from additional allegations made after the case against Mr. Paredes became public. 

In furtherance of these investigations, today we have obtained and executed multiple search warrants to collect any data and documentation of previous reports of abuse that may be held by the Dallas Catholic Diocese. 

The Dallas Police Department is working to complete a thorough investigation into each allegation, independent of any other entity to ensure that each victim has a voice within the legal system.  Our detectives have worked and continue to work hard combing through records, obtaining statements and doing a thorough job to make this happen. 

The following addresses were searched 3725 Blackburn Street Dallas, TX, 1809 West Davis Street Dallas, TX and 4601 W. Ledbetter Drive Dallas, TX.

Additionally, we want to thank those who have come forward with information in these cases and encourage anyone with information related this or any other case of child abuse to contact the Dallas Police Child Exploitation Squad at 214-671-4211.
