Drama in the pulpit! Very sad news coming out of Lake Charles, LA. It all stated when a former Deacon walked into a revival service and shoot the church’s Pastor, killing him in the middle of a revival service!
According to Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers, Woodrow Karey Jr., (pictured above) shot Pastor Ronald twice (once at close range and again after the pastor was on the floor). Woodrow later fled on foot before calling the Sheriff’s office and turning himself in. As it stands now, he’s been booked on a second-degree murder charge and his bond is set at $1 million.
Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso told NBC News affiliate KPLC,
“We’re trying to put all the pieces together. I’m sure we’re going to get responses from both sides, saying that they’re both great people and it’s my understanding that Pastor Harris and Mr. Karey were great friends at some point. So, this makes it very difficult for us to get to the bottom of this if in fact people don’t come forth and tell us the truth. We’re in that process, it’s going to take a long time but that’s where we are in this investigation.”
Well….some of the good church folks are saying the Pastor had a big sexual appetite for the women folk. Allegedly.
One source put it this way to a website reporting on the incident:
“He was sleeping with multiple women at the church parsonage, but he slept with the Deacon’s wife at the Woodrow’s house. This has been going on for a while, so it was only a matter of time before it came out. I Just didn’t think it would come out like this. If you get a man’s daughter pregnant and you sleeping with his wife – then I could see how this happened.”
