More claims of sexual abuse have been made against a former Erie Episcopal bishop after the current bishop publicly discussed the case over the weekend.
The current bishop, the Rt. Rev. Sean Rowe, said in a statement Tuesday that five more women contacted him to say they had been molested by the late Bishop Donald Davis.
Rowe released a statement last Sunday that was read in every parish in the Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania saying that Davis had abused four girls. Davis served as bishop in Erie from 1974 until 1991. He died in 2007.
Rowe has asked for anyone who was abused by Davis to come forward.
