Texas church, site of massacre, might be torn down and rebuilt

SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas (AP) — The pastor of a small-town Texas church that was the site of a massacre plans to demolish the building.

Pastor Frank Pomeroy told leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention that it would be too painful to continue using First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs as a place of worship.

The spokesman, Sing Oldham, said Pomeroy expressed hope he could turn the site into a memorial for the more than two dozen people who were killed last Sunday and build a new church on property the church owns.

Among those killed at the church was 14-year-old Annabelle — the daughter of the pastor.

Stephen Willeford thanked God for giving him ‘the skills to do what needed to be done’
