Oscar Paniagua was a charming 31-year-old native of Venezuela who came to Denver in 1999 heralding himself as El Mensajero de la Verdad, "the messenger of truth"; since that time police investigators estimate that Paniagua collected hundreds of thousands of dollars from people seeking spiritual, physical, and marital advice. Paniagua was finally arrested on charges of sexual assault, but was released on bail and granted permission to leave the state before facing theft charges.
