People were told about a civil lawsuit filed by Ron Vasek.
Bishop NEVER informed the people of the Diocese that the City of Crookston initiated a CRIMINAL investigation during the summer of 2017. The CRIMINAL investigation was initiated by Ron's report of coercion by the Bishop in 2015 to sign a false letter renouncing the abuse by Grunhaus. That investigation led to a search warrant which was issued to apprehend a letter, which was signed at the private residence of the Bishop in 2015. A letter was turned over to law enforcement officials via Bishop Hoeppner's lawyers from Rochester, MN.
Just have a look at this public Police Report.
Criminal Investigation of leadership of the diocese for attempted coercion.
When asked to speak with Msgr. Foltz, a lawyer calls back. Why did Msgr. Foltz not respond himself? If he had nothing to hide, why did he have his attorney call?
When Sgt. Travis asks for the letter, he doesn't get a response for 10 days. Why did it take 10 days for them to respond that they had a letter? What were they doing during that 10 days?
Bishop Hoeppner, May 14th, to the entire Diocese of Crookston: "I will do all I can to keep you informed as these matters move forward." Doesn't appear that way.
