Court records reveal 81 year old Ernesto Perez is accused of molesting three young boys under the age of 14 over the past 15 years.

Investigators say the victims started coming forward after Perez was arrested for shooting 73 year old Ron Whisenant to death last month.

Detectives allege the motive for Whisenant's murder was retaliation. Court documents say it was Whisenant who turned Perez into police for child molestation.
