Yonke - Blade Staff Writer Attorneys for Gerald Robinson have filed a  court 
petition seeking to overturn the Toledo priest's 2006 murder conviction  and 
raising suspicions about another Catholic cleric, now deceased, who worked  
Robinson as a chaplain at the hospital where the crime occurred in 1980.  The 
petition, filed in Lucas County Common Pleas Court, quotes Sister Dorothy  Mari

murder at  the former Mercy Hospital, saying that "in my youthful zeal and my 
desire to  catch the perpetrator, I accused Father Swiatecki" of murdering 
Margaret  Ann Pahl.....Father Swiatecki, a Toledo native whose hobby was wood

Margaret Ann, 71, had  been strangled to the verge of death, then stabbed 31 
times in the sacristy of  the Catholic hospital on Holy Saturday, 1980.

CTRL is a discussion & informational exchange list. Proselytizing propagandic
screeds are unwelcomed. Substance—not soap-boxing—please!   These are
sordid matters and 'conspiracy theory'—with its many half-truths, mis-
directions and outright frauds—is used politically by different groups with
major and minor effects spread throughout the spectrum of time and thought.
That being said, CTRLgives no endorsement to the validity of posts, and
always suggests to readers; be wary of what you read. CTRL gives no
credence to Holocaust denial and nazi's need not apply.
