A man who was presumed to be a pedophile was literally beaten to death with his own trumpet when some angry parents from a preschool where he had allegedly molested several kids attacked him while at a concert.
The attack took place in a cathedral not too far from Buenos Aires, Argentina. The trumpeter and music teacher was tracked down by the mob of parents at the cathedral on October 30.
After the vicious attack, Marcelo Fabian Pecollo, 42, was taken to the hospital where he remained on a coma until December 5, when he succumbed to his injuries.
Pecollo served only four years from the 30 year sentence he had been received in 2010 for having molested five children from a preschool.
As the parents drew near to the church where pecollo was performing the parents screamed, “There is a pedophile and a rapist in the church and he is playing in the orchestra.”
When pecollo attempted to flee the church one of the man chased him down and used the trumpeters own instrument as a weapon.
Priest Jorge Oesterheld informed the media that when he arrived at the church people were exiting the premises but that he noticed that the alleged pedophile was badly injured.
“They say they took justice into their own hands, but it was revenge,” said Oesterheld.
During a 2007 arrest the diseased had been accused of sexually assaulting seven children.
