Catholic priest is killed in rectory

October 24, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A Roman Catholic priest was found slain in his clerical robes in the rectory of his northern New Jersey parish, and authorities warned that a killer was on the loose.

Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi would not say how the Rev. Ed Hinds, 61, was killed but said the body had wounds "consistent with a homicide."

No one had been arrested. Police said they would not discuss possible motives.

Hinds was found about 8 a.m. Friday in the kitchen of the rectory attached to St. Patrick's Church in Chatham, an affluent New York City bedroom community, after he didn't show up to preside over morning Mass.
