Denmark: Bishop asks Vatican to investigate nun’s death at convent
Catholic World News - June 08, 2010
Bishop Czeslaw Kozon of Copenhagen, Denmark’s sole bishop, has asked the Vatican to investigate the 1993 death of an elderly nun at a Cistercian convent, according to The Copenhagen Post. The nun, who suffered from dementia, reportedly died after being locked in a garden on a cold morning. Two former nuns discussed the matter with police last week; the nation’s justice minister pledged an investgiation.
Another newspaper reported that the bishop has known about the suspicious circumstances surrounding the death since 2001.
