The death of a Catholic priest was the “happiest moment” of B.C.D.’s life after years of dealing with the pain of being repeatedly sexually abused when he was 9 years old, according to a lawsuit filed in the Superior Court of Guam against the Archdiocese of Agana.

B.C.D., who used initials to protect his identity, alleges he was sexually molested and abused by the late Monsignor Zoilo Camacho.

The plaintiff, now 55, alleges he was sexually abused once or twice a week for six months in the early 1970s while serving as an altar boy at San Vicente/San Roke Catholic Church in Barrigada, where Camacho served as parish priest.
