|A Night at the Opera: Wagner’s Götterdämmerung|
First, unlike the other two who have come forward so far, Walter confronted his molester some 20 years later at a party in Washington state. Apuron's treatment of him at this meeting apparently angered Walter all the more. As compensation for raping him, Apuron gave Walter a picture of the Virgin Mary, a CD of Apuron singing, and a picture of himself. Walter recounted this encounter a couple of different times when he was here recently and you can hear the disgust in Walter's voice as if it happened yesterday.
(I will insert here that at the time I had also tried to get Walter an attorney. I set up a meeting with an attorney from Guam who was in the states at the time to meet with Walter. I understood that the meeting took place. I never heard why the attorney decided not to take the case, but it may have been for the same reason the Vatican did not take it up: 1) it involved a bishop, and 2) there was only one victim and nothing else with which to corroborate Walter's story.)
