    Wouldn't it be relatively easy to determine whether DR attended school at the Abbey? Do they have old year books in their school library perhaps (if someone is local they might be able to find this out).... I wonder if police have already made such determination?

    If he went to the Abbey, or worked there, or was an alterboy (family is ultra religious according to several online sites, and forums).... then it may be more likely that he did suffer or witness some horrors of abuse....

    The schools are called The College of St. Benedict (both sexes) and St. John's University (males), and the Abbey is at the same location in Collegeville, MN. The schools are well-known and well-respected today, but the Abbey has a bit of a mark. I believe this has been discussed before, but here's a link and info for you.

    http://www.behindthepinecurtain.com/wordpress/?cat=83

    As a young boy growing up in St. Joseph, Minnesota and later, an an employee at St. John’s University and tutor at St. John’s Prep School, Daniel A Rassier had contact with several monks from St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota.

    Daniel Rassier is also an adjunct music professor at the College of St. Benedict and St. John’s University, holding the position since 1997, a spokeswoman said.

    Also, having lived in St. Joe all his life in a Catholic family, DR would have had contact with some of these priests who resided in St. Joe and worked at the parish church. Those priests are named here:

    OMG. One of the monks accused of pedophilia spent time with the Wetterling family following Jacob's disappearance. How low can a person go?

    What of the retreat cabin? How would anyone know who had been there and when, besides the multiple victims listed in the article, and still we don't know who was among the visitors. Seems pretty isolated. Could Jacob or Joshua have been taken there? Questions.

    The cabin on Swenson Lake is owned by St. John’s Abbey as a place for vacations and retreats for the monks in the Benedictine monastery.

    Wonderful thoughts. I wonder if LE has investigated this.

    Would they let LE do that? Didn't it take 5 days for them to allow LE to search the Abbey for Josh Guimond?

    I sure would hope they investigated it! That Father Eckroth mentioned in that link was a suspect in the Reker girl's murder from here also.

    Well, the Reker girls were from St. Cloud, not St. Joseph. But yeah, a lot of unsolved ones anyway - makes you wonder about the investigators - you know, the ones who were good friends with the senior Rassiers.

    There was some confusion earlier as to what investigators were sending to the lab for further testing -- we weren't sure if it was:
    - items from the property
    - items found in the ash

    This article clarifies that it is items found in sifted ash being sent for further testing.

    So, what really is happening?

    http://www.startribune.com/local/97577234.html

    "One law enforcement official with knowledge of the case said investigators did not search the house. He also said that, to his knowledge, they found nothing of interest on the property."

    It sure would be nice to hear something. The article you linked was older, dated July 2nd. This article from July 26th, say they did find items of interest. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
