Father Joseph Moreno was found dead in his Buffalo, New York rectory in October 2012, with a gunshot wound to the head. Immediately ruled a suicide, numerous inconsistencies still surround his death, raising more questions than answers.

In this months-long Spotlight investigation, Church Militant traveled to Buffalo, recreated the crime scene, spoke with witnesses and experts, including renowned forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht, and examined the events surrounding the life and sudden death of Fr. Moreno.

All the evidence points to one conclusion — and it’s not suicide.
