First of all, to those that feel I was spreading false accusations about father freed, that was not my intent. I took one look at the suspect and quickly realized that my thoughts and observations were way off. It is unfortunate that we live in a world where it is possible, even likely that my observations, which were not accusations, might have been true. Occasionally a rare individual, one who is genuine, sincere, and an all around great guy falls victim to our failed mental health system. It is a breath of fresh air to hear other share there memories of such a man, perhaps a saint in your religion. I feel sorry I brought up such a distasteful subject on one hand, and on the other feel that this sick perverse world we live in requires such discussion. What drove this crazed off his meds psychopath to commit such a terrible assault against such a good guy?
What if the killer is a minor who was fighting off an unwanted sexual advance? Was there forced entry into the rectory, or did Father Freed know his attacker. Why are the facts of the murder being kept quiet? Usually in cases of sexual murder, there are a lot of knife wounds, or gunshots. Whoever did this hated the father, or what the father was doing to them. If it turns out the priest was ramming a minor, I think the suspect should get off. A position of trust, everyone respected the father, he was friendly with many in the community, was he celibate, or did he like altar boys? Nobody knew, that's the norm, and those who did are afraid to talk. Who are they gonna believe, the child of the priest. Remember Jerry Sandusky, no one believed his accusers.
