“Maskell Hired a Hitman”
If you’ve done any preliminary Googling before the The Keepers airs, you’ll undoubtedly find that Father Joseph A. Maskell is one of the prime suspects. Now In Touch Weekly has an exclusive interview with one of Sister Cathy’s good friends, Pastor Gerard Koob. He tells In Touch that he believes that Maskell hired a hitman to kill her.
“Sister Cathy’s close friend, Pastor Gerard Koob, exclusively tells In Touch that he believes Maskell hired a hitman — and that man is still alive today.
“I still think Maskell is the key person responsible for her death, but [he] arranged for her to be assassinated,” Pastor Koob tells In Touch exclusively. “She was killed because she knew too much.”
According to former students, he would “prey” on the young women who were in vulnerable situations by calling them into his office. Many of those students would confide in Sister Cathy, a 26-year-old teacher who was beloved by the students.”
Others Believe Maskell to be at Fault
A former detective with Baltimore Police Department’s Homicide Unit, had similar sentiments.
He tells In Touch, “I’m convinced the church was protecting him,” Nick Giangrasso — a former detective with the Baltimore Police Department’s Homicide Unit — tells In Touch. “Maskell was the No. 1 guy we wanted to talk to, but he was always busy and never available.”
The interest that has been generated by the buzz of the Netflix series, has Sister Cathy’s former students hoping that justice will be served for their beloved teacher.
“She was truly amazing, and she could have done so much more with her life, but it was cut short,” Gemma Hoskins, one of her former students, tells In Touch, adding that one day, things will be made right not only for Sister Cathy but also all of the victims. “These women do not deserve what happened to them.”
