Catholic Diocese of Phoenix Names Clergy Pervs on Revamped Website

​T
he Catholic Diocese of Phoenix has researched and cataloged an index of its clergymen accused of sexually abusing kids and now has released some of their identities to the public. 

Spearheaded by Bishop Thomas Olmsted, the Diocese is putting out a list of sexually abusive clergymen on its newly revamped website. The unholier-than-thou inventory of pervert priests, friars, deacons, and even a bishop is meant to shed light on the abuse administered by the church over the years.

Even though there are only six names on the unfinished list, dubbed Community Notification Statements, the mere fact that it exists is a small step in the right direction.

"It's the right thing to do and I've got to give them that much," Joe Baca, Phoenix director of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests tells New Times. "They need to use these names to help victims to come forward." But you know, there's still more they can do."

Once completed the Diocese will be one of 25 to aknowledge members of its own clergy as sex offenders. There are 195 Catholic dioceses in the United States.

​​

"Maintaining a list of convicted offenders on the web is consistent with this bishop's active approach in dealing with reports of priestly misconduct," said Andrew Ellison, editor of Catholic Phoenix, a blog dedicated to Catholic news and preachings in the Valley. "I applaud Bishop Olmsted and his people for using modern media to demonstrate their vigilance to the faithful and the community at large."

The formation of the list comes the week of the conference of U.S. Catholic Bishops in Seattle, where revisions of the Church's abuse policies will be on the agenda.

Arizona has a long and shadowed history of sexual abuse by clergymen dating back to the 1920s. But as the perception of sex and sex abuse moves to the forefront of social consciousness, the trend of reported abuse cases is expected to rise.

"It's not taboo to talk about [sexual abuse] anymore," Baca, who as a child was sexually abused by a priest in the late 1960s and early '70s, says. "I mean, we're out in 2011. We just want the truth out, but the church refuses to do anything. We were children; we should have never been abused from the start."

The six Phoenix clergymen named are:

* Former priest Louis Ladenburger, who was arrested in Idaho in 2007 for molesting two teenage boys. He was a priest in Phoenix in the mid- '60s and early '90s.

* Friar Jorge Cordova, who was booked in 2007 for molesting a 13-year-old girl from 1992 to 1993.

* Former Jesuit priest Donald J. McGuire, convicted of two counts of engaging in sexual acts with a minor from 2000 to 2002.

* Friar Loren Riebe, accused in 2008 of having "misconduct with minors," according to the Diocese.

* Deacon Maxwell Rollin (Ron) Pelton, charged in 2009 with several counts of sexual abuse of a minor. Pelton retired in 2000 and is not active in the church.

* Former priest Dale Fushek, who last year was dismissed from the priesthood by the Vatican after a police investigation. .

I came to this site for the first time today 4/13/2013, as a friend mentioned a screen name I had used some time ago on "newszap.com" was being used - and so it has.

The party involved evidently registered the name using their email address and it is further unfortunate they chose to use that screen name to post in this forum regarding here say rumors concerning a local cleric.  That I would not have done.

While on "newszap.com", SunCityWestBill made it a distinct point to "take and maintain the high road" and to only state the truth.

It is unfortunate some spend their time critical of the actual or rumored life of another, someone they do not know, but feel it "their responsibility" to continue the judging.  Some one said long ago - let he who is without sin, cast the first stone.

I do not intend to be back to the shores of this cesspool.

I pray for the cyber-bullies to stop the hate, stop the lies, and do what they can to make amends. Life it too short to hold on to the hatred and it is a violation of God's law and of human decency to knowingly falsely accuse another person of criminal behavior especially as evil as child abuse or sexual molestation. There is no justice or charity in the lies these people so actively go about promoting.

(Continued from my prior remarks. This is part 3 of 4 posts.)

In our society, we are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, but in reality, some people judge others as guilty until proven innocent. The Cornwall Inquiry never set about to declare the falsely accused as innocent. The Ottawa Sun news reported that when it was all over, the Cornwall Inquiry cost was over $40 million Canadian dollars and it had produced over 60,000 pages of transcripts from 345 hearing dates and had 3,400 exhibits. Yet, none of it ever produced one shred of evidence against Father David Ostler that was worth further investigation. Again, the only reason his name came up was because of false accusations. Nevertheless, once a name is tarnished online, the tarnish apparently will exist forever. Official documents are seldom removed. And even if removed by the officials, they continue to exist within the blogs of hateful or misinformed people. Comments online which follow articles are often made anonymously or the person commenting uses another person's name as their own to manipulate the news. ---My name is Hans Ruygt, and I stand by what I say, unlike the cowards to hide behind their fictitious names and their destructive lies.  (Continue reading at Part 4.)

The Cornwall Public Inquiry was established by the Government of Ontario on April 14, 2005 and ended on December 15, 2009 when the Commissioner Normand Glaude released the Report of the Cornwall Inquiry. It is all available online for those who wish to read the details. There were 177 witnesses who were interviewed. Not one of them ever said anything about Rev. David Ostler, that had any merit or could ever be substantiated. Rather, one of the key witnesses, Ron Leroux, admitted that he had lied in his official testimony and Affidavit. He admitted to the commission on June 26, 2007 that as an act of revenge he lied about having observed prominent area men participating in sexual rituals. "I was angry for being molested," Leroux said. "I wanted to get back at them somehow." He also indicated that he had been coerced into making false statements about prominent clergy and others in the community. Before anyone jumps to any conclusions about Rev. Fr. David Ostler's involvement in any of this, they need to examine the source documents and the accusers. There were never any credible accusations against him and therefore he was not under investigation. It was just the fact that his name was listed in a very long list of people, many of whom were falsely accused. (I will continue in my next posting...)

It only takes a few very angry people to destroy a person's online reputation. Reverend Father David Ostler in Sun City West, Arizona has been the long-term victim of several people such as Pauline, who wrote below, (who goes online by many variations of that name) and SunCityWest Bill (who also goes by variations on the name). I don't know who these people really are, but people such as these have an axe to grind and are misdirecting their anger and manipulating information which they carelessly or maliciously fetch off the internet or fabricate.

I empathize with all who have ever been hurt by the lies that are spread about them. Calumny is a wicked sin. I am deeply saddened that so many people have been victims of very real abuse, but that does not justify attacking innocent people. Sadly, priests are often marked as guilty by association with the priestly vocation. Many holy men have been deeply hurt by the injustices against them. Once the lies are spread, they can never be erased in this age of cyber-bullying. The bullies will eventually have to pay for their sins before God. Their lies are spread by people who only read the top ten entries in the Google searches and those who readily believe the scandalous things they are told.  (I will continue in my next posting...)

Every time I would read about the sex abuse done in Cornwall (my home town) I would literally cry my eyes out and with wonder ask myself why all this is happening. For one thing is that nobody can touch the church officials (the black pope runs everything – a jesuit) he is above the regular pope we see. These people have been sexually abusing children for centuries and we never heard anything about any of this. The history books are all fake. I remember as a young girl going to church every first friday of the month after school and when arriving at the church young boys in my class would scream outside the church not wanting to go in and faint so as to stay outside and I knew then that something was very wrong and I was only 8 or 9 years old at that time. Even the doctors, lawyers, etc. were not trustworthy including the police because they were all entagled into this mess. I felt very sorry for Perry Dunlop and I cried for him and his family for what they went through but yes he did leave the people hanging. When I came back to live here in Ottawa many questioned me how I could have lived in Cornwall with all the horrible abuse going on. Well people that happens everywhere and if you look up what happened in Omaha Nebraska, in Boston Mass., in Ireland, and throughout the world it happens. Cornwall is a small town and more of a family town than Boston or Omaha or even Ottawa or Montreal. People know one another and expect trust and respect. Things went on for decades and I am 59 almost 60 and things went on long before my time. It is only now that things are coming out of the woodwork as they say since we have the internet where people talk, radio and television. In the past people hid all these horrible acts that went on but no longer. We are more vocal of what is going on. If you look at that Col. Williams of all people who held a very high rank and look at what he did. He was flying the royal family and the pm around and he could have gone nuts and drove the plane into some building or into the ground for all we know. He did these horrible acts of sex abuse, theft and murder and he is getting off very easy because of this nitwit looking pm Harper changing the laws. I am sitting here wondering if he knew about this all along and changed the law just for him or what.  Fr. David Ostler Sun City West Az. born in Cornwall,Ont.

To all who are upset with the way the Church is or is not operating, we all know they can not operate for long without our money. The Diocese pays the Priest, and the money we donate, in a large part, goes to the Diocese.Cut off the donations at the Parish level, and then we will get the attention of all of the Diocese.I started 6 weeks ago just giving 2 cents, in an envelope, each Sunday. I know some others who are doing the same. We call it giving our 2-cents worth-and if the idea grows, soon there will be a real impact.It really is time to put our money where our mouth is, and that can be done by joing our 2-cent movement.    Will of Sun City West,Az.

The Archdiocese of Detroit received an allegation of sexual misconduct involving a male under the age of 18 from its Victim Assistance Coordinator in September, said Ned McGrath, spokesman for the archdiocese. The accusation was reported to the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office in September. A message left with the county prosecutor has not been returned. Bishop Olmsted transfered Schulte to Detroit Mich.The Free Press was unable to reach Schulte for comment today. McGrath said the archdiocese found enough substance for the restrictions and its investigation continues. “We have not made a decision of guilt,” he said. Schulte is not allowed to celebrate Mass or sacraments or present himself as a priest publicly. Church officials said only that the allegation dated to the early years of Schulte’s ministry. He was ordained a priest of the Detroit archdiocese in 1972, according to information posted on the archdiocese’s Web site and has worked in Clawson, Beverly Hills, Warren, Royal Oak and Madison Heights.Church officials did not give any other details about the incident or the alleged victim. A critic of the Church’s handling of abuse cases said the archdiocesan investigation took too long and that the Archbishop of Detroit should visit every place where the priest worked to urge people to call police.“It shouldn’t take a month to determine whether an allegation is credible,” said David Clohessy, national director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests.Schulte’s sister describes her brother as an honest, straight forward man who has helped a lot of people over his lifetime. The Archdiocese of Detroit received an allegation of sexual misconduct involving a male under the age of 18 from its Victim Assistance Coordinator in September, said Ned McGrath, spokesman for the archdiocese.

Having a catholic church free of molesting clergy for sure would be an ideal place Sylvia but realistically un-attainable. There are many fundamental reasons to account for it’s attractiveness to pedophiles and unless these are addressed and dealt with in a realistic and responsible manner the problem will continue to grow. We should always remain encouraged by the good things people like yourself do and that work must continue always. However, as the attitude of the church is to maintain the status quo – cover up and enable- , we will forever be in the process of “purging” , much like trying to keep flies away from a field full of cow manure.

Father David Ostler Brother of Father Gary Ostler .Father David Ostler was ordained for the Diocese of Grand Falls, Newfoundland in 1987 by Bishop Faber MacDonald, then bishop of Grand Falls, Newfoundland.  He served at St. Joseph's Church in Gander from 1987-1989 (Pastor Father Edward Bromley), and as Pastor at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Gambo from 1989-1992.In the 1991 Canadian Catholic Directory Father David Ostler's address is that of Saint John Bosco in Cornwall, Ontario (Pastor Father L. Rivet)-  he is still listed as incardinated in the Diocese of Grand Falls.   In the 1992 CCCD he is listed as Pastor at Saint Marguerite of Scotland in Glen Nevis (still incarinated in Grand Falls but now serving in the Diocese of Alexandria-Cornwall). In 1993 his incarination has been changed to Alexandria-Cornwall - he is still at St. Margaret of Scotland. 1994:   St. Margaret of Scotland. 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000: Our Lady of Grace, Ingleside 2002:  Not listed in CCCDSome time in the early 2000 Father Ostler relocated to the United States.  In 2005 he became incardinated in the Diocese of Phoenix, Arozona.   There are persons who allege they have seen Father David Ostler at Malcolm MacDonald’s cottage and/or Ken Seguin’s home.   It would seem from David Sheriff-Scott (Diocese) at the Cornwall Public Inquiry that Father Ostler abused alter staff ages 12 - 14 yrs old while being a clan member then he started to drink heavy.Prior to his departure for the United States Father Ostler spent time at Southdown.  According to Father Ostler and Bishop Paul Andre Durocher that was for a heavy drinking

I read this article and yes, some/most of us are left hanging! I was sexually abuse by my father and some priests and had to endure the pain all over again with this inquiry. I went for councilling and still need it, but because of transportation I had to stop! Not good, and the government should be ashamed for opening up wounds that are to hard to stomache and with our “guts” ripped out and left on the floor, for them to say we are done with you and were not paying anymore for councilling because we already heard what you have to say and we brought your story to the courts and said it the way WE wanted to…we don’t need you anymore!! Thats how I feel….used and abused all over again! I would love to be a part of society…work and bring home a paycheck like the rest of the people…maybe even feel important..maybe have money and be treated with respect..maybe have a husband that I can cuddle up to..and love..and live life with my husband with no fear that I would be abused again! Live a normal life like everyone else! You know, that was all taken from me…my kids are now affected from my past, they didn’t ask for this..nor did I or my husband! But like the government is saying in a matter of speach…”get over it, we did, we did this inquiry for you guys..what more do you want?” Thats how I feel!! I believe the government is finacially responsible to help the victims…you used us, you brought our abuse back to us to face again..do something…let us know that someone cares! Make the punishment for perpetrators stronger so they don’t have the chance to revictimize again!

I have been working on pages with further information for two priests on the Accused list:   Father Paul Pornbacher and Father Kevin Rolston.   True, I already have a page on Rolston, but, I found more information which I decided should be posted.The Rolston page is nearly finished- I will have the updated page  posted later this evening.  There is still a bit of work to do on the Pornbacher page – will get it posted either this evening or in the morning.This is part of my desire to get all the information I have available for each of those listed on the Accused page posted on a separate page .   It’s been a long process but it’s getting closer to completion

7. I can advise and have witnessed a "clan" of pedophiles which were comprised of the following people: Bishop Eugene Larocque; Father Charles MacDonald; Father Donald B. McDougald; Father Bernard Cameron; Father Kevin Maloney; Father Gary Ostler; Father David Ostler now appearing at Prince of Peace in Sun City West AZ; Father Ranald (Rory) MacDonald; Claude Shaver (ex-Chief of Police of Cornwall); Mr. Ken Seguin; Late Msgr. R.J. MacDonald; Late John McPhail; Late John Donihee; Late Norman Loney; and Malcolm MacDonald, Q.C. 8. I have witnessed sexual improprieties, molestations, fondling, oral sex, intercourse (anal) between the above-named "clan " members and minors through the period of 1957 or 1958 to 1993. These sexual improprieties with minors (male) occurred at Cameron’s Point, Summerstown, Ontario; Birch Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, U.S.A.; Saltaire Motel, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, U.S.A. Lot 17, Concession 1, R.R.#1, Cornwall, Ontario; Malcolm MacDonald summer residence, Stanley Island, Ontario; Malcolm Cameron’s Law Office, Pitt Street, Cornwall, Ontario and St. Andrews Parish House.

Most people think sexually predatory priests are loners who have gone rogue, but, in fact, they often work in packs to target victims, says a forensic psychologist.“These are actually pedophile rings made up of priests who were essentially trading children, sending them different places, taking them on trips where other priests would come and abuse them,” David Lisak said in an interview.“We have plenty of examples of people who become Boy Scout troop leaders, teachers, who get into positions where they will have access to children, and the priesthood is no different. There’s no question that some of these priests who are abusing kids actually chose the priesthood because of the power and opportunities that it would provide them.”

You may confidentially register as many addresses in the County as you wish, and we will continuously monitor the addresses and send you an email alert if a new offender registers an address within the specified radius of any address you register. There is no cost for this service and no limit to the number of addresses you can register - your email address and physical addresses are all confidential.

Davad Ostler 10 months agoHe never believed in celibacy. He never for a moment felt that he was deceiving parishioners by living a ‘double life.’ He believed the expectations put on him by Roman Catholics were “antiquated.” He claimed his sexual assaults on two teenage boys were acts between consenting adults. He felt his job as a priest was to make the Church “more modern.” He never told Catholics that sex outside marriage is alright, nor did he tell them it was all wrong. As far as his homosexuality goes: “I don’t really care what the public thinks.” He is adamant that he did not betray his parishioners.  Bill SCW.

Bill the Vatican of course. If you can’t bring criminal charges against this supposed “Prince of Peace” and divinely appointed gobble gobble talker, you can at least bring civil charges against them.Remember:In 300 years the Roman Catholic Church will refer to these times as one in which the church was falsely and malignantly attacked by atheists, non-believers, government and Satanic enemies of Christianity.They will say:“Against a massive effort to discredit the piety and chasteness of the clergy with accusations of heinous crimes, the church and her followers fought a protracted battle against this evil… eventually triumphing in the name of Jesus and to the greater glory of the mother church.”, more lies and for his crimes David Ostler is now at Prince of Peace in Sun City West,Az.

According to state law, when a sex offender moves, he or she is required to register with the county sheriff's office, which notifies by mail the city where the offender has moved. The city police department then collects police, court and prison records and interviews the offender to assess a risk level. Once a level is assigned, the department must notify the public of the offender's presence.Sex offenders are classified into low-, moderate and high-risk levels. Police are required to notify the community when a moderate- or high-risk offender moves into the city.

They don’t impact the crux of the crisis: the virtually limitless power of bishops -Bishops ignore and conceal child sex crimes because they can (because of archaic, predator-friendly laws, the deference of civill authorities, the devout faith and deep confusion of victims). So any “reform” that doesn’t diminish bishops’ power and discretion is virtually meaningless, so Olmsted will continue to hid David Ostler in Sun City West,Az.  Gencua.

I have witnessed sexual improprieties, molestations, fondling, oral sex, intercourse (anal) between the above-named "clan " members and minors through the period of 1957 or 1958 to 1993. These sexual improprieties with minors (male) occurred at Cameron’s Point, Summerstown, Ontario; Birch Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, U.S.A.; Saltaire Motel, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, U.S.A. Lot 17, Concession 1, R.R.#1, Cornwall, Ontario; Malcolm MacDonald summer residence, Stanley Island, Ontario; Malcolm Cameron’s Law Office, Pitt Street, Cornwall, Ontario and St. Andrews Parish House. 9. I have also seen pictures of minors possessed by Malcolm MacDonald. Malcolm MacDonald advised that he took all the pictures himself with a Polaroid Camera. I visually recognized some of the minors in the pictures who were naked and/or exposing their penis and genitals. I recognized Mr. Mark Menard; XXXXX [C-5] David Silmser and Bob Varley in these pictures. All of these minors would have been between the ages of (14) fourteen to sixteen (16) with the exception of Mark Menard, who would have been between (17) seventeen and nineteen (19). These pictures were stored in Malcolm’s middle desk drawer of his office which remained unlocked at all times. Malcolm often left the drawer open with these pictures exposed. Malcolm’s legal secretary, Connie, would have seen these pictures on numerous occasions. In fact, Malcolm took some of the "minor" pictures in his own office. He (Malcolm) also had several other pictures of minors in which I do not know by name. 10. Malcolm MacDonald also possessed several "Kiddy Porn" tapes which he stored in his residence library at Captain MacDonald Rd., Cornwall, Ontario. Malcolm also had more pornographic pictures and sex toys at his home residence. 11. Malcolm MacDonald also possessed "Kiddy Porn" magazines at his summer residence, Stanley Island Lake. Malcolm also had "Kiddy Porn" tapes at this summer residence during the summer months. 12. I owned and operated, with XXXX [C-8], a renovation company called XXXXX. Our business office was located in the outer front office in Malcolm MacDonald law office. The walls were very thin and you easily overheard any of Malcolm’s conversations even with the door shut. Myself, XXXX [C-8] and Connie, Malcolm’s Secretary, were privy at different times to private conversations of Malcolm’s. 13. The "Clan’s" regular meeting spots were Ken Seguin’s home in Summerstown; Malcolm Cameron’s summer residence on Stanley Island and St. Andrews Parish House. I observed "clan" members at these meeting spots all the time, some more frequent than other. Other "clan" meetings were held at Cameron’s Point and Birch Avenue Area, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. 14. I have observed Claude Shaver at Ken Seguin’s home, at Birch Avenue, Fort Lauderdale and at Malcolm Cameron’s summer residence. Mr. Claude Shaver was definitely a "clan" member and was very good friends with Malcolm MacDonald, Father Charles MacDonald, Ken Seguin and Bishop Eugene Larocque. I observed Mr. Claude Shaver talking with young male prostitutes on Birch Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. I observed these male prostitutes to be approximately thirteen (13) to fifteen (15) years old. 15. I observed Bishop Larocque talking to young male prostitutes on Birch Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. I observed these male prostitutes to be approximately thirteen (13) to fifteen (15) years old. I also observed Bishop Larocque in the late 1950’’s or early 1960’’s, as a Father, performing inappropriate, illegal and perverse sexual acts with minors, Altar Boys, at Cameron’s Point. In fact, Eugene Larocque committed illegal, inappropriate and perverse sexual acts against myself while I was a minor. I also observed him fondling and molesting other Altar Boys at a cottage at Cameron’s Point. I attended with Stan Legalais and was dropped off by an adult as we were both too young to drive. During this party, I observed a ceremonious ritual of candles in the Altar Boys rectums with sheets over them. These Altar Boys were walking around with the candle in the rectum and the sheet over them with no clothes on, during this ceremony, several members of the clergy were fondling these young boys, and molesting them. I specifically remember Bishop Larocque (who was then a priest), Father Cameron and Father McDougald molesting and fondling these Altar Boys. In fact, all of the aforementioned priests also committed illegal, inappropriate and perverse sexual acts against myself as a minor. The place, Cameron’s Point, was occupied by a priest that drowned in his boathouse in the mid-sixties. This ritual went on on a weekly basis. 16. I also observed Ron Wilson at Birch Avenue, Ft. Lauderdale. 17. It was well known that Birch Avenue was a pick-up point for minors, who were prostitutes and was a problem area for the local police. Most of these minors were males. The Marlin Beach Hotel was also a well known haven for male prostitutes, mostly minors, the clan members called this area the "Gaff". 18. Malcolm and Ken Seguin frequented the "Gaff" area at Ft. Lauderdale yearly. I observed sexual improprieties with minors by Malcolm at Saltaire Motel. 19. On or about mid-December, 1992, I attended Ken Seguin house and found him in a state of depression. I observed him at 5:30 a.m. in his pyjamas on the ice behind his home. He was suicidal. I immediately went outside and talked him back into his place. At this time he told me about the allegations against him made by David Silmser. He also told me there was another person involved. I brought him to Florida to help him recuperate. 20. I returned to Ft. Lauderdale on or about February 3 or 4, 1993 by myself. I return to Canada on or about early March, 1993 to find my home in a complete mess as if someone had searched my home. I received a telephone call from the O.P.P. Lancaster, Ontario advising me that they had done a search of my house and that they found a leather suitcase and weapons. The officer asked me to go to the Station and I went the next day. When I arrived, I was greeted by an O.P.P. officer, 6’3 or 6'4 in height, who talked to me about the leather suitcase. He asked me if I owned the suitcase and I replied "No". He seemed to not want me to leave with the suitcase. He asked me if I knew what was in the suitcase and I replied "No". He then said that he knew what was in the suitcase and advised that it contained pornographic tapes. I signed a release form and left the suitcase at the O.P.P. station. This officer advised me that he was going to destroy these tapes. I then returned home. 21. A few hours after returning from the O.P.P. station, I attended Ken’s house to ask him what was going on as he had agreed to take care of my home during my trip. Ken Seguin was also suppose to look after my dog. I was infuriated and asked him about this suitcase. Ken Seguin admitted that it was his suitcase and that it contained personal pornographic tapes with his handwriting on them. Ken also stated that it was his tape collection from over the years and that he wanted them out of his house. He said that he was under investigation for a sexual assault and that these tapes would "clinch" a conviction against him. Ken said that it would ruin him. Ken was extremely apologetic. I also observed destroyed tapes and probation documents in a bin at my home, on the upper floor outside the master bedroom bathroom, I was surprised to find the destroyed tapes and documents. 22. On or about March, 1994, in the presence of my wife, Cindy Leroux, I advised an O.P.P. officer and an Ottawa officer of these tapes. Both officers stated that they knew nothing of these tapes but would look into it. 23. I plead guilty on Malcolm’s advice to an "unsafe storage" charge and was fined $300.00. 24. From March, 1993 to end of August, 1993, I am privy and present during several conversations between Malcolm, Ken Seguin and Father Charles MacDonald. Malcolm advises to Ken Seguin not to worry as he was going to take care of the allegations against him and Father Charles MacDonald. I remember a heated discussion between Malcolm and Ken Seguin on or about May, 1993 in which Malcolm stated that he had the connections to take care of the allegations and that he was the person to do it. He also stated that he was going to talk to the Chief and would settle things. He told Ken to stop being so paranoid about things. 25. On or about June or July, 1993, Ken Seguin advised me that "Heidi" was in charge of the case and that it wasn’t going to go anywhere. He appeared happy about this. 26. On or about June or July, 1993, I started to hear the name Stuart McDonald being discussed by Malcolm and Ken Seguin. Ken advised that the allegations against him and Father Charlie were not going to go anywhere as Stuart McDonald was now looking into it. I continued to hear the name Stuart McDonald frequently from Ken during the months of June, July and August, 1993. 27. On or about a Friday evening in late August, 1993-early September, 1993, I was told by Ken Seguin that there is going to be a gathering a Malcolm’s summer home on Sunday. He stated that Bishop Larocque, Claude Shaver, Ron Wilson, Malcolm, Father Charlie, and others would be in attendance. He said they were having a get together on the Island. 28. On the Sunday morning at approximately 8:30 a.m., myself and Ken are having a coffee in Ken backyard. Malcolm arrives and states that he has steaks, beer and booze for an army. Malcolm states that a lot of important people are showing up for dinner today. Malcolm stated that Ron Wilson, Claude Shaver, Bishop Larocque, Stuart McDonald, Brunet, a Judge from his drinking days, and Father Charlie would be in attendance. At approximately 11:30 or so, I observed Malcolm turn into Ken Seguin’s driveway. I then observed Murray MacDonald exit Ken’s back door. I clearly observed Murray in the back yard. Afterwards, Shaver arrived with two (2) other males. They exited the car and I observed the two (2) other males to be Stuart McDonald and another cop. They go to Ken’s wharf and get into Malcolm’s boat. They, Malcolm, Claude, Stuart and the other cop, head towards the Island and wave at me as they are leaving. A second vehicle arrives with two (2) males in it. They exit the car and I observe Bishop Larocque and another priest. Both of them go to Ken’s wharf and Malcolm had returned. Just before they were to leave, Malcolm, Bishop Larocque and the priest, Father Charles MacDonald arrived in his car with another priest, Rory MacDonald.They immediately went to join the others in the boat. I remember that Ken went and got a red milkbox from his boathouse as Malcolm’s boat only had four (4) seating capacity. I was in Ken’s backyard, approximately 15 to 20 feet from the boat as the five (5) of them pulled away for the Island. I told Ken I would put his phone away as I thought he was going to join them. Ken advised me he was going to go in his own boat and they proceeded to leave. A fourth car pulled up along the front of Ken’s house, stopped for a few seconds and left towards the marina. I observed Ron Wilson and waved to him. He waved back. I observed two (2) other males in the car with Ron Wilson. I then observed Ken Seguin leave alone for the Island. On or about 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Ken returns alone and pulls up to my wharf. Ken advises me that he has a new lease on life and seems elated. He advises me that the allegations against him are settled and the he can get on with his life.  29. Ken Seguin advised me that a bunch of "V.I.P.’s" were on the Island. 30. After the Sunday meeting on the Island, Ken seemed revived for a few weeks. Then something happened and he started to get nervous again. He advised me that calls were starting again and that a cop was not going to let it go. Ken mentioned the name Dunlop, in fact, he said "fucking Dunlop". I started to observe in late September, October and November, 1993, a great deal of traffic at Ken’s house. Father Charlie and Malcolm attended very frequently in the evenings. I observed Ken getting more and more nervous; and more and more depressed. He was suicidal. 31. Approximately two weeks before Ken’s death, Ken advises me on a planned hit against Dunlop and family. I would go over to his house daily during this two (2) week period. Ken would violently throw-up, was loosing weight and was extremely sick. Ken was in this state of mental disarray because a family (Dunlop’s family) was going to be killed. In fact, I was present at a meeting between Malcolm, Ken and Father Charlie, for a brief period, where they openly discussed the killing of Dunlop the Cop and his family. Father Charlie was the most vocal and enraged stating that he hated Perry Dunlop, and that Dunlop and family will be disposed of. Malcolm stated that Dunlop is not going to let it go. Malcolm said that he had inside information from the Chief that Dunlop was not going to let it go. They continued to discuss the planned attack and I left to go home. Approximately two (2) days later, at Harv’s Diner, Malcolm and Ken are sitting across from each other and talk about Dunlop. Ken seems to want to discuss it, but Malcolm says not here. Ken then says "where are we going with this now" and Malcolm responds "I don’t want to talk about it here and now, it’ll be taken care of, stop being so paranoid. I keep telling you about your paranoia." 32. The next day, I arrive at Ken’s home in the evening and he is a total mess. Ken is on the couch wrapped in a blanket and he is shaking. Ken refuses to do anything. He says that he does not deserve to live anymore, all queers are scumbags. Ken also states "I feel bad for this poor cop and his family. They want to get rid of them. They are going to rub them out." Ken says "I don’t deserve to live. I just want to die." Ken proceeded to cry and lay on the couch. I sat with him for thirty ( 30) minutes or so, and went home as he fell asleep. 33. A few days later, at Harv’s Diner again, Malcolm and Ken seemed very tense. Ken advised Malcolm that he could not function anymore and that something better be done right now. I can’t go on like this. Ken asked Malcolm if he had heard anything more on the cop, Malcolm said I will talk to you at my office. 34. Approximately four (4) to five (5) days prior to Ken death, a male in a Mercedes Benz showed up in front of Ken’s home and got out of the car. The car was facing towards town, I asked him if he was looking for someone. He said he was from Ottawa and was a Land Developer looking to buy property. His phone rings in the car and reached into shut it off. As he reached in I noticed a gun on his belt. I asked him if he was a cop and he advised that he was a Land Developer. He asked me "who lives in this house" as he is pointing towards Ken Seguin’s home. I advise that it is Ken Seguin’s home. He said the lots are small and made small talk. In retrospect, I find it strange that this person was looking at Ken’s home. 35. Ken Seguin committed suicide on the night of November 24, 1993. 36. A few days prior to November 24, 1993, Ken advised that he was going to draft a confession in a report form and quit his position. He was attempting to figure out his pension and talked about the points system. Ken stated that he was going to write it all down in a report. The report was later verified by Joss Van Deppen at Ken’s funeral. Joss advised me at the funeral that Ken had left a full report on his desk. He also stated that he told Ken to watch his step for years, Malcolm had also stated that Ken Seguin had left a report on his desk. 37. At the funeral, Malcolm made his way to me and told me to keep my mouth shut. He said whatever you know and whatever Ken said, "keep your mouth shut". I questioned Malcolm on his involvement in Ken’s death. He said that he was only a messenger boy and became angered. He then left. 38. I, later that day, with my wife and son Dustin returned to Wilson’s funeral home to talk with Ron Wilson. He, Ron Wilson, stated that they were all into it up to their necks. He specifically named Claude Shaver, Bishop Larocque, Malcolm, Father Charlie, a Crown Attorney and then he stopped. He then stated that they will eventually get to the bottom of all of it. I stated there were others. He stated "Oh yes". Ron Wilson then repeated the names of Claude Shaver, Bishop Larocque, the Catholic Church, Diocese of Alexandria, Malcolm MacDonald, Father Charles MacDonald and a Crown Attorney as been into it up to their necks and they will get to the bottom of it. I left shortly thereafter. 39. I make this affidavit no other or improper purpose. SWORN BEFORE ME at the ) Town of Newmarket, in theRegional Municipality of York ) This 13 day of November, 1996 ) __A Commissioner, etc. _______________                             Ron Leroux

it is all pathetic. religion is rotten.

If people are so concerned about the welfare of children, they should apply the same criteria across all sectors of society e.g local public school system, sports coaches, all religious bodies and the scouting movement and of course families.  This approach would treat the problem in it's widest context and the combined resources of the relevant organizations who deal with the horrors of child abuse should be utilized to their maximum effectiveness.  Notwithstanding all that, the Catholic dioceses need to demonstrate with the greatest possible accountancy and transparency that they are doing all they can to weed out predators from the ranks of the clergy.

John Chuchman

Will they list all the perverted bishops who helped perpetuate the abuse?

Really?
Really?

Wow, we couldn't tell your bias on this.  "Pervert List"?  That really is a sound journalistic title, but when you are trying to make a buck and get people interested I guess I wouldn't expect less.  I'd be interested if you'd use the same title for all the sexual offenders that are out there that are teachers, coaches, mentors, etc.  

The Catholic Church knows it has a problem, but its odd how all these other organizations quietly pass by without hardly a headline.

This is one good step forward.... Hopefully the Phoenix diocese will list all accused predator priests..This is one way to stop the sex abuse of children within the church system..

The public deserves to know... that is the only way to protect our kids today.

Don't try to apologize for the catholic church. For two thousand years they have been lying to people; abusing children and woman, and running a criminal organization. How dare you!

albert f. maas
albert f. maas

Would that then mean that 25% of the abuse is committed by the clergy who are a very small number of the total population?

Really?
Really?

Well that was just a blanket lie and you seem very bitter.  Sorry.

This is a ridiculous caricature of this world-wide body of religious and laity, both men and women who provide on a daily basis selfless spiritual and palliative aid to the sick, dying, unemployed, emigrants and the impoverished.  In fact Catholic organizations provide a quarter of such charitable care in the world.  Over 2000 years countless saints, holy martyrs and religious thinkers and activists have been produced by the Church as witnesses for Christ on earth.  Also the Catholic Church has made an unparalleled contribution to Western civilization through music, architecture, art, literature and the sciences.  Sex abuse is a terrible scourge and the  culpability of predatory priests and negligent bishops has to be acknowledged but they do not reflect by any means the totality of Christ's Church.

Really?
Really?

Okay, I'll take a look at this.  Thanks for pointing me to your explanation.

I will stay with my comment. The Catholic Church has been lying . They actually have made you believe that there is a Bronze Age palestinian jew living in the sky who watches your every move and knows your every thought. As far as the care for the sick, the dying, the unemployed etc.; it comes with too high a price, your intellectual integrity and your autonomy.I would like to see the statistics on your percentage of the churches care for the world's population. I think you are padding the book on that one. Please don't put religious and thinker together in the same sentence. It is an oxymoron.

 Where are the women in places of authority in the Catholic Church  or any other Abrahanic religion? That's right , there are none! The Catholic Church has tried their best to keep women subserviant and under their thumb with their anachronistic ideas on sex and reproduction.

 It would seem that you have been drinking the "Kool-Aid" so far. Try reading a history book.
