ERIE -- Erie's Episcopal bishop said a total of nine women have come forward to complain of sexual abuse or other unwanted contact by his dead predecessor.
The Rev. Sean Rowe in July said other women were coming forward with similar claims after he announced that former Bishop Ronald Davis had sexually abused four young girls.
Bishop Rowe, in a letter released Sunday, said the number of victims stands at nine and that no new complaints have been received since July.
Davis was the bishop of the diocese from 1974 until 1991; he died in 2007 at age 78. the rest
