For the second day in a row, federal investigators remained on scene Thursday at the Grapevine office of internationally known televangelist Benny Hinn.
An IRS special agent said Wednesday they executed a search warrant.
“Criminal investigation primarily investigates financial crimes against the government,” said Special Agent Michael Moseley of the IRS Criminal Investigations department.
And few are likely paying more attention to what’s going on than 25-year-old William Vandenkolk.
“I really just want justice,” he said Thursday from his home in Nevada. “I want him to admit what he did was wrong.”
We still don’t know exactly why the government is raiding Hinn’s office. But Vandenkolk is interested regardless. You can see Vandenkolk’s story posted publicly in a YouTube video, which shows him at a Benny Hinn service when he was just 9 years old. He was supposedly “healed” by Hinn during a service in Las Vegas.
Vandenkolk is legally blind. He said while he was on stage, he felt he could see people’s faces clearly in the crowd.
