The Abuse Puzzle

Published June 23, 2010

But a two-year Journal-World and 6News investigation into the Kansas Catholic Church shows that church officials continue to keep the public in the dark about some cases of abuse. Advocates and victims still express frustration with how the church handles abusive clergy. Our investigation, which identified dozens of cases of abusive clergy in the state spanning nearly 60 years, also examines reforms that the Church is making to prevent abuse.
