(Toledo, OH) Toledo Blade religion editor David Yonke is expected to publish an account of the 1980 murder of Sister Margaret Ann Pahl as well as the trial of the man accused in the case, Father Gerald Robinson.
Tentatively titled “Sin Shame, and Secrets: Murder and Cover-up in the Catholic Church,” the book is expected to be released in September 2006.
Contacted by me for the Toledo Free Press, Yonke declined to offer any comment on his upcoming book, but confirmed that the writing is in progress.
Retired Toledo Police officer Dave Davison, who led a one-man crusade for years to keep up the investigation of Robinson, believes that Yonke’s book will be well-researched.
“I gave him 300 pages of documents that I obtained under the Freedom of Information Act,” he said. “He should be in good shape.”
