Accused French priest commits suicide (CNA)

Father Benjamin Sellier, a French priest ordained in 2015, committed suicide after being accused of sexually assaulting a girl. French media reported that a letter was found near his body in which he admitted the abuse.

“Our diocese is going through a tragic ordeal with the death of Father Benjamin Sellier,” said Archbishop Vincent Dollmann of Cambrai. “His death shocks us and plunges us into sorrow … I am thinking of this young complainant and her family, of the parishioners and priests of the diocese, and of the bereaved family of Father Benjamin.”
