A former Catholic priest convicted of abusing children was found dead hanging in his home in Bolivia, police said Thursday.
Eduardo Revich was found guilty of abusing 18 children and sentenced to 15 years prison in April 2011. He was serving his sentence under house arrest as he appealed the ruling.
Revich was found hanging in the town of Tarabuco, said Mario Moyano, the head of police for the Chuquisaca region. "One of the first theories is that he took his own life," Moyano said.
