A Texas beauty queen is murdered on Easter Sunday and 53 years later, the only suspect, the priest who was the last to see her is still a free man. That's despite the fact that other priests, local police and the Texas Rangers say John Feit is the murderer. But they are helpless to do anything.
The reasons why are unique and infuriating to many people. Law enforcement officials consider the evidence overwhelming and plentiful. And people who used to be authorities in the Church who volunteered to testify said Feit admitted killing Irene Garza.
We found John Feit in Arizona, now married and a former priest, and he was very surprised to see us.
