    Wandering Eye: A deeper look at a 1970 murder case, Amazon heads to the Supreme Court, and more
    Some of the best stories published about modern Baltimore have come from Tom Nugent, who for City Paper in 2005 did an exhaustive review of the mysterious unsolved murder of Sister Catherine Ann Cesnik, a Catholic nun, whose body was found in January 1970. Nugent is now publishing new material on the "Sister Cathy" case on his website, insidebaltimore.org, concluding that "new evidence points to church, police cover-up in sexual abuse-related murder of Baltimore nun." Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts should take note, as any cop complicit in covering up what happened to Cesnik and victims of sexual abuse by Baltimore police officers and Catholic priests—which Nugent's reporting recounts—remains institutional poison even more than two generations after it allegedly occurred. Though the perpetrators may be dead, addressing any cover-up and finally solving the cold case of Sister Cathy would aid the living victims while helping to restore public confidence in the department, which, based on Nugent's new reporting, needs to cleanse its conscience.
