Investigators say a man died while in the act of raping an elderly South Texas woman, The Associated Press reported.

The Refugio County Sheriff’s Office identified the man as 53-year-old Isabel Chavelo Gutierrez. Sheriff’s Sgt. Gary Wright says the incident happened June 2 after the man rode two miles by bicycle from his home to that of his 77-year-old victim in the tiny coastal community of Tivoli.

He says the man, weighing between 230 and 250 pounds, sneaked into the woman’s house and raped her at knifepoint.

During the attack, the assailant said he wasn’t feeling well, rolled over and died. His body was sent to the Nueces County medical examiner in Corpus Christi for autopsy.

Gutierrez was a registered sexual offender on parole from a sentence for aggravated sexual assault and indecency with a child. Gutierrez had been released from prison in 2008.

Gutierrez was armed with a pocketknife, police told the Corpus Christie Caller Times. He rode from his own home in Tivoli, where he was registered as a sex offender, and entered the home by lowering the glass pane on a screen door.

The woman said she saw Gutierrez at a local post office one day before the June 2 attack, police told the newspaper.

After he lost consciousness during the attack, the woman drove from her house and called her daughter, who then alerted authorities, the newspaper reported.

    I should not laugh at this article but I laughed anyway, the manner in which the man died, raping a woman in her home. I thought this is a sure Hell for him. He got what he deserved. It should be a warning to other rapists if they will pay heed. These rapists are also a menace to society. I wish that all those who rape women and children would die in that manner. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: This is the immediate punishment of God.
    He saved the U.S. Law an exorbitant sum of money to defend him, to feed and to house him in prison.
    I do feel sorry for the lady. She will never forget this incident and that a rapist died in her home. His evil spirit is there. I hope that she is a lady of strong spirit with strong faith.
    If she is a Catholic Christian she should call the Priest to bless her home and also pray with Holy Scriptures. If she has Holy Water at home she should utilize it.
    Whatever her religious beliefs, I hope she is a believer and a practicing one of another church, she should call a Pastor to bless her home and pray to release that evil spirit which is also that of Satan.

    These men need the love of God to overcome their sinful ways

      We need to pray for people, the world in general, that God might save everyone who is presently living.
      Every one has to pray for him/herself as well and practice the faith as we should, according to the Ten Commandments of God – Note the Beatitudes – and “the religious teaching” of the Church.
      It is said that Good governs the world but prayer governs God. He expects us to pray for every one in general. Our reward will be happiness and peace on earth and ultimately Heaven.

      No way! He did not get away too easy. He got away from the arms of the earthly Law but not the Heavenly Law and this is for all eternity. Think about that.
