Netflix's 'The Keepers' Revisits Nun's Unsolved Murder

Wochit Headline News - Friday, 19 May 2017  (6 days ago)
Eager to find its next "Making a Murderer," Netflix devotes seven hours to "The Keepers," a cold case that has as its center the unsolved 1969 murder of a Baltimore nun. While the story takes several engrossing twists and unexpected turns, the project labors at times under its complexity. While the show reflects the grim realities of a sordid situation that was allowed to go unchecked, even as a back-to-back binge the compelling narrative can at times feel unwieldy with out the clear focus of proving guilt or innocence. The project derives its title from teenage students of Sister Cathy Cesnik, now in their 60s, who have kept this mystery alive and doggedly sought to uncover what really happened. Beyond Cesnak's abduction and brutal murder and that of another young woman, the investigation exposes abuse and corruption within the Catholic Church, including allegations originally brought forth in the 1990s regarding a high school chaplain, which might have played a role in Cathy's death.
