Minister Nick Minerva (middle, red tie) killed himself yesterday rather than face allegations he tried to lure a 14-year-old girl for sex.
The Chandler Police Department executed a search warrant at a Valley church yesterday in search of evidence that the church's minister tried to lure a 14-year-old girl for sex over the Internet.

The alleged pederast, 52-year-old Nicholas Minerva, responded by fatally shooting himself.

According to the Chandler PD, Minerva, minister at Trinity Baptist Fellowship Church in Phoenix, was being investigated for allegedly trying to lure a girl he met in an Internet chat room for sex.

The chat-room conversations started in July and ended (obviously) yesterday.

During one of the chat room conversations, police say, Minerva used a web cam to expose his penis to the girl.

Minerva is survived by his wife and four kids.

Read more about Minerva at the church's website.

Chandler police suspect there may be more victims, and encourage anyone with information about Minerva to call the department at 480-782-4130.

Nick Minerva was my intensive probation officer for several years beginning in 1997. He was tough, but had a kind heart. I never would have guessed that he had these kinds of skeletons in his closet. I am saddened for him, his family and his parishneers. Simply because he made a mistake or poor choice does not mean he was not a good person and that there aren't wonderful qualities about this man. Additionally, it is my best guess, that there is far more to to this story than we are (or will be) told and the "alleged 14 year old" did not disclose her age initially, nor did she act or look like a teenager. Let us rememeber that the "allegegd 14 years old" was really an adult detective acting like a 14 year old. Nick Minerva, although a pastor, was still a man with feelings and desires. I hope everyone can rememeber the good things about Nick and forget about this ugly story that we may never know the truth about.

Will the pedophile Rev serve as an example to America's vilest Sheriff? Hendersnott is going down, and ArPayaso's empire is crumbling. Will Sheriff Joke take the Minerva Exit and avoid the perp walk by suckin' a pistol when he hears the knocking at his door?

We can only hope.

Did you guys see the poor sheep at the church who went on TV saying that it must have been a mistake, and the suicide was staged, he could never do it.... I don't know too many innocent people who instead of talking to cops, eat a bullet...

How about Chandler police who set up the sting which ended up in a man's tragic death. Naw, crack open another beer and sing a song of Christ instead. It's way too much to think about. Who knows if he would ever had gone the route of child abuse. Because there was no child abuse here, only the opportunity. If the police place a bag of coke on someone's door step...and if they pick it up, take it inside and don't call the police are they guilty of intent to use cocaine or intent to deal because it was a large amount? Let's say are now charged with intent to deal cocaine. Are they drug dealers or abusers? It's because child abuse charges are a socially agreed upon life ender that this kind of event is created by police departments around the nation. It's a despicable way to run your city and if anything, that is the action of those you rail against and call sons of bitches.

And to the asshole Blah who comments against those who despair over a man who shot himself and you say "hey man-nice shot!" Have fun with the shit that goes along with saying something like that but most of all really believing shit like that. What comes around goes around asshole.

Who was the victim here? There was no 14 year old victim. If I was the family I'd sue for conspiracy, complicated by the self inflicted murder caused by the police department's action. They wouldn't allow it to be filed and it probably wouldn't be winnable but it might bring the subject up in public to be looked at in a different light for once.

So if I commit a heinous act, rather than attributing it towards my own free-will.. I should just say Satan made me do it?I'm opening my window now, and tossing out my own logic.. it was all wrong! Must have been Satan's doing!

You keep posting that and it's starting to give me a complex. I'm either going to let my hair grow into a pony tail, and shave my mustache, or start of life of crime so I can fit into that 99% just like me.... Will I need to get copious amounts of tattoos and body piercings, too?

Nah, I'll just take the word of what the police supposedly did according to the police in ad - rag articles I read on the Internet as unassailable Gospel.

No, it isn't victory for all involved. While I am truly thankful that there really wasn't a 14 year old girl involved, it is a living nightmare for the family members left behind. My heart goes out to them for their loss, grief, pain, anger. He probably did do this out of guilt and shame, but now innocent people are suffering.

And that's the whole point, Walter.

In today's fucked up world, you don't have to commit a crime - just think about it.

God likes it that way, 'cause he's a punk like all the filth he created IN HIS IMAGE.

That's the kind of illegal methods arpaio is known to use. And PLEA (Mark Spencer see: Officer Chrisman's case). Both LEAs has rogue cops who used such unethical methods on innocent people. Its a travesty to our justice system.

Tommy,The old man you are replying to is schizophrenic and a (or either) Hells Angels wannabe(or has been). But in your famous trademarked sayings in there:

"The [normally its the Shurf] the man is mentally ill".

You and everyone else who is a "clean cut short haired" person should be proud that they are clean and practice good hygenic skills. Where the ladies love us for that.
