Baptist pastor Nicholas William Minerva was being served with a search warrant when he ran back inside his church and shot himself in the head. Minerva has been engaged in a ongoing conversation with an undercover police officer posing as a 14-year-old girl. The chats had originally started with a real teen. Minderva is alleged to have shown his willy to the undercover officer among other unsavory actions.
The chats, that were with a teen and then unknowingly with detectives after police had been alerted, had been going on since last July.
Authorites say he had 'inappropriate conversations' with the 'girl' and once showed his genitalia via a webcam.
That’s a hell of a way to go out. He had a wife and four children. It’s all so sad.
Minerva was the pastor at Trinity Baptist Fellowship church.
