Catholic Priest Found Slain in Church Rectory

ABC NEWS: Police have launched a homicide investigation after a popular Catholic priest was found dead in the rectory of a northern California Catholic church. The body of Pastor Eric Freed was found Wednesday morning after he failed to show up for a 9 a.m. New Year’s mass, authorities said. Freed’s body was found in the rectory of St. Bernard’s Catholic Church in Eureka, Calif.

Police have not revealed details about a possible motive, cause of death or any suspect in the case. “I want to ensure the residents of Eureka that this does not appear to be a larger situation where people need to be concerned. However, we are expending every resource possible to make sure that this investigation is as thorough as possible,” Eureka Police Chief Andrew Mills said.
