AP: Guam’s Catholics reckon with decades of ‘horrific’ sex abuse

The AP confirmed someone used Apuron’s name, birthdate and Social Security number to register to vote late last year in New Jersey, but residents living at the address listed said they don’t know him. The Catholic archdioceses of both Newark and Guam said they don’t know where he is.

Walter Denton prays as the sun rises in his backyard in Agat, Guam, Saturday, May 11, 2019. Denton is one of over 200 former altar boys, students and Boy Scouts who are now suing Guam's Catholic archdiocese over decades of sexual abuse they say they suffered at the hands of almost three dozen clergy, teachers and scoutmasters. "He took everything from me. From that day forward my demeanor changed. I break down, I hurt everyday and I still hurt," said Denton. But, he adds, "he didn't ruin my faith. I still believe in God." Former Archbishop of Agana, Anthony Apuron denies the allegations. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
