California Pastor Allegedly Hired Hitman to Kill Daughter’s Boyfriend…

Hello World,

The devil must have taken over Samuel Pasillas.  The 47-year-old pastor for a Spanish-speaking church in the city of Victorville, California is being accused hiring a hitman to kill his daughter’s boyfriend, according to the Riverside Police Department. The attempted murder took place last October.

On Saturday evening, October 21, 2023, Riverside Police Officers responded to a local hospital regarding a person who just arrived suffering from gunshot wounds from a shooting that occurred around 7:00 p.m. in the Orangecrest neighborhood of Riverside.  The male adult victim said he was driving on Grove Community Drive approaching Plainview Street when another vehicle pulled up alongside him.  Gunfire came from this other vehicle and he was hit several times.  The victim drove himself to the hospital and was treated for his injuries, and officers located evidence of a shooting on Grove Community Drive and Plainview Street.

The Riverside Police Department conducted a investigation and subsequently learned this was a murder-for-hire shooting.  The victim had been dating the daughter of Pastor Pasillas. During their investigation, detectives uncovered evidence the father met with the men he hired and provided them information about the victim, including his location the evening of the shooting.  Detectives also determined these men were paid almost $40,000 by the father and had conducted surveillance on the victim in the weeks leading up to when they shot him.

Earlier this month, detectives served search warrants at homes in Victorville, Long Beach, and Lynwood.  Pastor Pasillas was arrested and later booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center for solicitation for murder, conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder, and assault with a deadly weapon.  He is currently being held on $1 million bond. Juan Manuel Cebreros, a 55 years old from Long Beach, was arrested and later booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center for conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder, and assault with a deadly weapon.  He is also being held on a $1 million bond.

This investigation is still ongoing and there are no other details to release at this time.  Anyone with additional information should contact Detective Nic Cantino at (951) 353-7104 or  Those wishing to remain anonymous can email, or download and use the Riverside Police Department’s “Atlas 1” mobile app by utilizing the “Send a Message” feature.  The department’s app can be downloaded here at APPLE or ANDROID.

Isn’t that wild? I wonder why Pastor Pasillas didn’t approve of the man his daughter was dating? I wonder about the ages of the daughter and the man she was dating. I wonder what his daughter thinks and if she is still dating the man. Is Pastor Pasillas married? I wonder what the congregation thinks! So many questions need to be answered, but most of all, thank God the man did not die from his injuries…I imagine that this story will soon be featured 20/20, Dateline or a similar show…
