The father of the girl in the sex tape that cops say may have led to Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz’s murder told The Post he is “angry” — and apologized to the victim’s family.
Javier, whose last name is being withheld by The Post because his underage daughter may be a sex crime victim, said he immediately recognized her when his brother sent him the video on Facebook.
“I cried a lot… it’s disgusting to see my daughter in a video like that,” Javier, 43, said through a sign language interpreter, knowing his daughter would’ve been between 13 and 14 years old when the video was taken.
“I don’t know what happened. Their mother doesn’t raise them right… It’s pathetic.”
Javier learned his daughter was in the video, which was illegally shared to Snapchat and other social media websites after it was taken in August 2017, when news of Guzman-Feliz’s murder exploded on social media and amateur sleuths went on a desperate hunt to track down the people who could’ve played a role.
The father said he also has two sons with his daughter’s mother, one 14 and the other 17, and said he doesn’t recognize any of the eight men arrested in connection with Guzman-Feliz’s murder. His children’s mother has an order of protection against him for unknown reasons, and he said he has no idea what role his children could’ve played in the death, if any.
“Everybody on Facebook is saying it’s my fault, but I don’t know anything, I haven’t seen her,” Javier said, adding he sends his condolences to Guzman-Feliz’s family.
“I’m sorry this happened… I feel lost. My heart is broke. I’m shocked, I’m very emotional right now.”
Javier and his daughter have been receiving death threats on social media, leading him to deactivate his account and be in fear for his life.
“I have to be careful walking around, I’m scared… I’m worried… I need my safety for these children,” the desperate dad said.
He added he has not been contacted by the police and said his daughter is not the girl the NYPD has been providing protection for. Police sources have been unable to confirm if Javier’s daughter is being investigated.
