Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, SNAPclohessy@aol.com)
We are sad for the family of a notorious serial predator priest, Father William Hodgson Marshall, who has passed away. But we are relieved that he can no longer devastate any young lives.
We hope this child molesting cleric's death brings some degree of comfort and closure to those he has so severely hurt. .
Finally, we hope that every single person who saw, suspected or suffered crimes by this priest will step forward and get help.
