HOUSTON, TX - Investigators confirm that Cardinal Daniel DiNardo's laptop was seized following the search of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
Multiple law enforcement agencies executed a search warrant at the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston on Wednesday. The search was conducted in connection to the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office investigation of a Conroe priest accused of child molestation.
The Montgomery County District Attorney's office is now listing six potential victims of the priest in question, Father Manuel La Rosa Lopez. So far he’s been charged with four counts of indecency with a child in Montgomery County.
“Anybody who’s been a victim of child sexual assault knows it’s the most violent of cases,” said Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon. He spoke to reporters on Wednesday morning outside the Archdiocese in downtown Houston as investigators were seen going in and out of the building collecting evidence.
