Death of an Altar Boy : The Unsolved Murder of Danny Croteau and the Culture of Abuse in the Catholic Church
by E.J. Fleming




Overview -
The tragic death of 13-year-old Danny Croteau in 1972 faded from headlines and memories for 20 years until the Boston abuse scandal—a string of assaults within the Catholic Church—exploded in the early 2000s. Despite numerous indications—including 40 claims of sexual misconduct with minors—pointing to him as Croteau's killer, the Reverend Richard R. Lavigne remains "innocent." Drawing on more than 10,000 pages of police and court records and interviews with Danny's friends and family, fellow abuse victims, and church officials, the author uncovers the truth—church complicity in a cover up and the masking of priests' involvement in a ring of abusive clergy—behind Croteau's death and those who had a hand in it.
