Born Samuel Beniquez Mendez

Samuel Beníquez Méndez (born 1971 in San Juan, Puerto Rico) is a Puerto Rican best known for being nominated for an Emmy Award in year 2012 [1] and as a plaintiff in an adoption law case that rose to the Puerto Rico Supreme Court. He is the plaintiff in a widely reported court case to enforce his legitimacy rights against his alleged biological father, the world leader of the Pentecostal Congregación Mita, Teófilo Vargas Seín.

His story is the subject of the book Tu Alto Precio... Mi Gran Valor - La Vida de Samuel Beniquez; el Hijo de Aarón by Miguel Amadeus and Samuel Ortiz Ramos (2005).[2] He has since built a successful career as a public relations agent and co-founder of Advertising Values For All, as San Juan PR and advertising agency. On March 11, 2013 at 7:50am, Aarón did the DNA test. The results of the DNA test showed a positive result of 99.99999 percent chance that Teofilo Vargas Sein is his biological father. The results were presented by Judge Arlene Sellés on March 25, 2013, in the Court of First Instance, Superior Chamber, San Juan, Puerto Rico.[3][4]

Beniquez was adopted by his maternal uncle and aunt Félix Beníquez and Ada Méndez. In 2004, this decision was appealed to the Court of First Instance of Puerto Rico for fraud and vitiated consent, as were claimed Beniquez' natural mother always lived with him, so the adoption in the light of the law never existed. Later on Antonia married and left her aunt and uncle's home with Beníquez.[5]
