Nevada-Authorities say a former priest from New Jersey accused of groping young boys was found shot to death in his home in Nevada.
The body of 70 year old John Capparelli was found Saturday around 9:30 a.m. in his home.
Last month, Capparelli's name was included on the list of 188 priests and deacons in the state “credibly accused” of sex crimes against children.
Though never convicted of a crime, multiple accusers say Capparelli made them wrestle in swimwear while he took photos. Capparelli was also linked to a fetish website he allegedly ran from his home.
Capparelli worked at Our Lady of Fatima in North Bergen, Oratory Prep in Summit, Holy Trinity in Westfield, St. Theresa in Kenilworth and Temporary Chaplain - Valley Hospital in Ridgewood.
There are no further details at this time.
