COGIC bishop LT Walker dies; end of justice?

Originally posted at GCM Watch 021709

The Little Rock based COGIC bishop who was in the spotlight during the murder of a homosexual pastor under his charge, has died.

According to the denomination’s website, Bishop Leato T. Walker passed away Sunday morning and will be eulogized Feb 23th and 24th.

Walker never responded to claims that he sat on information about homosexual pastor Ronald Paige who was murdered by a  young black homeless man he allegedly attempted to rape. Since Memphis media broke the story several other male victims came forward attesting the pastor molested them when they were members of his church. One parent stated that Walker knew of the molestations but never removed Paige from office nor disciplined him.

To date, Walker, COGIC national and its presiding bishop Charles Blake, maintained complete silence on the case and the dead pastor. Walker’s death may end any real attempts for justice for the families of the young men.
