The Franciscan Priest Murders - 439
On August 5, 1982, Father Reynaldo Rivera, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, was murdered and his body was discovered three days later. Nearly two years after that, Father John Kerrigan, in Ronan, Montana, disappeared after leaving a bakery in downtown Ronan. Days later, his bloody clothes were found along a highway. Also found was a mangled and bloody coat hanger. Similarities between the two cases seemed obvious, but is there a connection? Nic from True Crime Garage joins Aaron to discuss these perplexing cases and possible motives.
