David Yonke, religion editor for "The Toledo Blade", takes an examined look into instances of violence and sexual crime and cover-up in the Catholic Church.David Yonke's new book "Sin, Shame, & Secrets" is the shocking but true story of the 1980s ritual murder of a Roman Catholic nun that went unsolved for more than two decades - until cold case investigators arrested Father Gerald Robinson, a 66-year-old Roman Catholic priest, at his home next door to the Toledo police station on April 23, 2004.Just over two years later, on May 11, 2006, a jury convicted Father Robinson of murder and the priest was sentenced to life in prison, a term he is now serving at a maximum-security prison in southern Ohio.An award-winning journalist and the religion editor of "The Toledo Blade", David Yonke covered the trial from gavel to gavel. "Sin, Shame, & Secrets" chronicles the unique and compelling case that involves startling evidence of a satanic murder, an examination of the cover-up by the Toledo Catholic Diocese, and an inside look at how cold-case investigators and the prosecutor's office put together an iron-clad case that resulted in a conviction after just 6 hours of jury deliberations.
