CATHERINE CESNIK: Nun murdered in Baltimore, MD - 1969

Discussion in 'Cold Cases' started by Ladyslug, May 20, 2017.

    Five decades after the murder of Sister Cathy Cesnik, The Keepers has hurled the cold case back into the national spotlight. The nun was killed in 1969, her body found in 1970, and her assailant never formally identified. The investigation has persisted, but information has been sparse throughout the intervening years. Now, just as Keepers debuts on Netflix, updates in the Sister Cathy murder case carry things right up to 2017.

    Watching the docu series now it is very interesting.

    The first episode also mentions another person Joyce Maleki who went missing a few days after sister Cathy who's body was found in a few days unlike Cathy's who wasn't found till nearly 2 months later,
    Both women went missing from shopping areas and there cars were found near there homes but not in usual places

    The Keepers review: spotlight on a serial

    The Keepers is literally the best thing I have ever watched. I love watching films and documentaries about murder. There is nothing that I would prefer to do. A well-made murder documentary is, to me, what a Fabergé egg must be to an art dealer, or a signet ring to a Pitt Club member.

    The Keepers is distressing, harrowing and, fundamentally, just scary. It is a documentary which explores the 1969 murder of an American nun, Catherine Cesnik, although it has a much wider scope as the murder is inextricably connected to the crimes and illicit behavior of the Baltimore Police, the Catholic Church, and, indeed, the Maryland state government. Just looking at the image of Sister Cesnik on the content cover sends an ice-cold chill down by spine.

    Through its seven episodes, The Keeper draws a spider-web of despicable and widespread crime: Cathy Cesnik was the unfortunate centre of a wide-reaching array of state and church-led crime. The Keeper reveals an almost unbelievable scale and depth of sickening human behaviour and truly makes one question how such a quantity of horrific crimes could remain suppressed for so long.


    @Ladyslug Did you finish the series? What did you think? I'm going to try to watch it tomorrow.

    O.K. This is Gross, But it says She was found "Frozen, Face covered in Maggots" if She was Frozen, I personally have never heard of them feeding on a "Frozen" Body. It's not a Key to the Case. It just stood out to me as Strange. IDK.
