Bobby Davis, a pastor of Miracle Faith World Outreach church in Bridgeport, Connecticut dropped dead in church after confessing that he committed adultery.
Bishop Bobby Davis, who founded the church in 1967 asked his congregants to stay after his sermon on March 9 so that he could ask their forgiveness for his unfaithfulness, a source told the Connecticut Post.
Emotions ran high after Davis confessed his sins, Judy Stovall, who said she witnessed the bizarre incident, told the outlet. She said congregants shouted that they forgave him and told him they loved him.
“The stress of it all — he had a heart attack,” Stovall told the paper.
Police have seen no criminal element in the case and have closed the case.
“We have had numerous inquiries about a pastor who suffered a medical crisis at Miracle Faith World Outreach on Harriet Street and later died,” Bridgeport Police Department spokesman Bill Kaempffer said in a statement obtained by The Huffington Post.
“Detectives interviewed dozens of people who were present and reviewed video that was taken by a member of the church. Based on that investigation, investigators are confident that there is no criminal element.”
