FAIRFIELD — Police are seeking help from the public as they investigate allegations of child abuse against a Fairfield man that date back to the mid-1990s.

Jose Gustavo Ortega-Reyes, 40, was arrested Friday on the 2300 block of Flicker Court on suspicion of multiple counts of sodomy with a child, lewd and lascivious acts with a child and oral copulation with a child, police said in a news release.

Combined bail for all but one of the allegations was nearly $39 million. He was held without bail on a separate allegation: for allegedly sodomizing a child under the age of 10, which carries a 25-years-to-life prison sentence with a conviction.

Police said Ortega-Reyes was the adult uncle of the victim. The police investigation began in late November with the crimes occurring between 1994 and 1998 in Fairfield.

Ortega-Reyes was engaged in a heated argument Nov. 5 with half-brothers German and Xavier Lopez when Xavier Lopez allegedly shot him. Police at the time said Ortega-Reyes knew the half-brothers but did not acknowledge any familial relationship.

The shooting occurred in the area of Flicker Lane and Quail Drive where Ortega-Reyes was arrested Friday.

German Lopez, 31, allegedly shot and killed Xavier Lopez, 24, about an hour later near Kaiser Permanente Vacaville Medical Center in Vacaville. He turned himself in to authorities the next day. He has pleaded not guilty and is being held without bail pending criminal proceedings.

    WHOA! $39 million is a whole lot of bail. Am I suppose to read between the lines and conclude that German or Xavier was the victim, and that is why this individual was shot, because that's what I did. Now I just need to know why German shot and killed Xavier.

    Says the victim was his nephew. Also says the 2 other guys were his half brothers. Maybe because it was the 2 other guys nephew or 1 of their children why the fighting started? Interested in hearing what's really going on in this situation.

    If he is indeed guilty, it is too bad he didn't succumb to his gunshot.

    Yes...I'd like to know if the "victim" is the child of either half brother, and why did German kill Xavier? Pretty easy to accuse someone 20 years after the fact. Did German kill the wrong one?

    Christine..it says German and Xavier were half brothers. It doesn't state that they were "his" half brothers. Pretty complicated mess, I'd say!

    You're right about the half brother thing. What a total mess. Lots to this story.

    German is definitely not the victim! He knew exactly what he was doing. He should have just stayed out of the drama and let them figure it out. Sad to know that it all went down like this.

    Shocked--I was alluding to my prior comment which has been censored out. It must have really hit a nerve.
