Phoenix Police release suspect description in priest attack

| June 14, 2014

PHOENIX (KSAZ) – Phoenix Police are still investigating the murder of one priest and the assault on another.

56 year-old Father Joseph Terra made a 9-1-1 call Wednesday night after he was brutally attacked at the rectory at the Mother of Mercy Mission.

"My assistant chased him, he's ben beaten, right now he's beaten," said Father Terra.

His assistant, 28 year-old Father Kenneth Walker was shot and killed during the attack.

Silent Witness put out a flyer Friday offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. The description on the flyer of a man in his 40's came from Father Terra.

Bishop Olmstead said last night that despite having brain injuries he was still able to give police a description of the suspect from his hospital bed.

"It helps immensely for us to be able to get some of that information from him, whatever information he can provide to us, as we have limited information at this point," said Sgt. Steve Martos.
