Priests hired hitmen in suicide pact

2012-02-14 22:33

Bogota - Colombia's prosecutors office says two Catholic priests hired hitmen to kill the priests themselves when at least one of them was diagnosed with Aids.

Maritza Gonzalez with the prosecutor's office said on Tuesday that priests Rafael Reatiga and Richard Piffano paid about $8 500 for the hit. They were found shot to death dead in January 2011 in a car in southern Bogota.

Gonzalez said the priests had planned to commit suicide by throwing thesmelves off a cliff but couldn't bring themselves to jump. She said medical tests showed 36-year-old Reatiga had AIDS.

Two of the four assassins have been arrested and appeared before a judge in Bogota on Tuesday for processing.

    Well another nail in the coffin of the lie that the Catholic clergy do not indulge in sex (except with kiddies). But then the whole church is built upon lies so the hypocrisy is to be expected.
