More Skeletons in the Vatican Closet

The Catholic Church doesn’t have enough closets for all the skeletons they have–literally! This week investigators in Rome opened up the tomb of notorious mobster Enrico DePedis on a tip that they’d find the remains of Emanuela Orlandi, a fifteen-year-old who disappeard in 1983. (Why, one wonders, was a Mafia chieftain buried on Vatican property? He couldn’t have been that devout. Or did he make the Pope an offer he couldn’t refuse?) But investigators found more than a  set of bones in the tomb; they found a dozen boxes of bones. Police are now doing tests to figure out whose bones these might be. Just when you think the scandals with the church can’t get any worse, they do. I write fiction, but, man, you can’t make this stuff up.  Read the whole story here.
