The beating death of a Texas man who was allegedly sexually assaulting a 5-year-girl will be treated as a homicide investigation, the Lavaca County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

The girl's father, 23, whose name has not been released, says he caught Jesus Mora Flores, 48, trying to molest his daughter on his ranch earlier this month. After hearing the girl scream, the father found her and removed Flores from on top of his child, the statement said. He proceeded to inflict several blows to Flores' head and neck area, the statement said.

"At this time, I believe the homicide investigation should be sent to the grand jury," Heather McMinn, the Lavaca County District Attorney, said in the statement. She went on to say the sheriff was correct not to arrest the father at the time of the incident, but "all evidence surrounding this homicide will be presented to the grand jury as soon as possible."

Sheriff Micah Harmon, according to the statement, believes the girl's father is remorseful, and did not intend to kill Flores. He called the case "traumatizing" for the girl and her entire family.

"He was just protecting his daughter and doing what he thought he had to do to protect his daughter," Harmon said.

The victim was an "acquaintance" of the father who visited the ranch to help care for some horses, according to Harmon, adding he did not know how long the men may have known each other prior to the alleged incident.

A witness told law enforcement that Flores was seen forcibly carrying the girl to a secluded area, the statement said. When the girl's dad found out, he began calling her name, and when he heard her screams, he moved in.

When emergency medical personnel arrived at the scene, Flores' pants and underwear were down, and his genitals were exposed, the statement said. All the witnesses' statements corroborated the father's story, the release said.

Flores had a green card and the sheriff's office has been working with the Mexican Consulate to locate his family, The Gonzales Inquirer reported.

The grand jury will consider this week if the father will face any charges.

Seriously. If I ever heard my daughter scream, then bust in to find you with your pants around your ankles, a few blows to the head is the LEAST of your concerns.

The father killed someone... of course he's going to stand in front of the grand jury. The grand jury will decide whether or not he'll face any charges.

Did anyone really think he'd simply avoid all legal matters entirely?

Sick son of a [email protected] deserved every last blow he took and a few more.  I'd be disappointed in the justice system if any charges are placed on the father.  IF this guy was caught doing this in Mexico there wouldn't be anything to even talk about, the cops wouldn't be called.

Your FIVE YEAR OLD DAUGHTER screams, you run to her and see a 48 year old with his pants down.  If he gets convicted of anything, it will be a sad day.

I doubt you could find 12 people who would see that as murder, let alone have all 12 in the same room.
^That

It's a waste of time, no one will convict this guy. I sure as hell wouldn't. If it's a homicide, then it's a justifiable homicide.

If this man gets charged with anything for protecting his daughter, under those circumstances, in TEXAS, this country is truly doomed.
sad but true

The Grand Jury in Texas will do the right thing! Not sure what they would do here, though....

No way a grand jury is sending this to trial, if it even gets that far.
