Product Information

Roman Catholic Priest Gerald Robinson was convicted in 2006 of the 1980 strangulation and stabbing murder Sister Margaret Ann Pahl, who was 71 at the time -  Pahl was murdered on April 5, 1980, the day before Easter, in the sacristy of a chapel of the hospital where they worked together. Robinson presided at her funeral Mass four days after her death. Pahl was stabbed 31 times, including nine times in the shape of an inverted cross. Prosecutors considered that this shape was deliberate and intended to humiliate Pahl in death. Pahl was found covered in an altar cloth, her clothes and body arranged to suggest she had been sexually assaulted, although it was not clear that she had been.

The case remained unsolved, with no new leads, until 2003 when police received a letter from a woman who claimed that Robinson had sexually abused her when she was a child in a series of Satanic ritual abuse that also involved human sacrifice.

The accusations were sent to the prosecutor's cold case unit. Forensic tests indicated that a sword-shaped letter opener that had been found in Robinson's apartment and stored without detailed examination was not inconsistent with the weapon that inflicted the wounds; in the words of the prosecutor's expert, it could "not be ruled out." The tip of the opener fitted a wound in the jaw of the nun's exhumed body "like a key in a lock," according to prosecutors, The case against Robinson went to trial on April 24, 2006. Robinson was found guilty on all counts on May 11, 2006. Robinson died on July 4, 2014 in a Columbus, Ohio hospice after a having a heart attack in May.
