Darick Favors, a Dallas, TX, pastor was found dead in a motel on Wednesday. The Dallas Police Department said the 42-year-old bishop of Full Gospel Tabernacle was found deceased from “unexplained causes.” The Christian Post reported that a staff member revealed there were “drugs” in his room.
A statement from Dallas Police said Favors was found at about 12:05 p.m. on Wednesday.
“The complainant, Darick Favors B/M, was found deceased inside his room. This incident is being investigated as an Unexplained Death,” the statement said. “There were no obvious signs of homicidal violence.”
Favors was scheduled to check out of the hotel on Wednesday at 11 AM, but he was found dead instead.
A hotel worker reportedly told the Christian Post that “drugs” were involved in Darick Favors’ death. “We do not know how many types of drugs were there,” the staff member said.
According to the Full Gospel Tabernacle website, “Through the laying on of hands, Pastor Favors has seen God’s people awaken from comas, healed of cancer, fully delivered, filled with the Holy Ghost, encouraged, motivated, demons cast out, set free from prison walls, and much more. The glory stays with God for opening numerous doors on TV and various radio appearances and now our own radio broadcast every Saturday.
“Bishop Favors is a young man that displays a humble attitude and character. Many continue to be blessed through the ministry placed in him. Truly, we can say this is a man of God after God’s own heart.”
Dallas pastor, Darick Favors, was found dead in a hotel room on Wednesday this week. His death is being investigated as stemming from “unexplained” causes.
Although “drugs” are alleged to have been in the room where Favors was found, the Dallas Morning News reports that “the Dallas County medical examiner’s office had not ruled on the cause of death. Investigators say they are awaiting toxicology tests, which could take weeks.”
Favors’ wife, Michelle, posted a message on Facebook asking people not to “interfere” and stating, “things are being done without my consent.” She urged church members to keep their talk about the pastor “holy” and to keep the family in their prayers.
Below is her full message:
God Bless Everyone!
This is a very difficult time for my family. I’m asking with the Love of God to please not interfere at this time. Things are being done without my consent and I just ask that you please show my family mercy.
Leave your conversations holy and about the wonderful works my husband did while he lived. Talk about how he impacted your life, that means more to us at this time. Thank you in advance for understanding and your sincere prayers. ❤
I will respond to messages as I am able.
