730. St Pius X Convent, Kottayam

The St Pius X Convent in Kottayam, India is today mostly known for the death of Sister Abhaya who were between 18 and 19 years at the time of her death. The death itself was tragic and while some claimed that it was suicide even with the extensive numbers of cuts on her body, later investigation did show that it was murder.

The church did little to help the police. In fact they did everything to stall the police investigation putting young women and even children at risk.

It could not have been fun to be a young girl or woman in that Convent.

The Catholic Diocese of Lincoln in Nebraska has been around for a long time. They operate youth camps. Maybe they should stop doing that after a number of incidents have reach the media. Several young people seem to have experience improper behavior by elder staff members and attendees surrounding the Diocese.

It could not have been fun to be there as a child being exposed to such behavior.

Northwest Academy closed after 24 years. It came to life under the CEDU umbrealla. The sick ideology which was invented by the religious community Synanon was used on innocent children. Later after CEDU collapsed it was purchased by a large investor group running a number of residential programs all over the United States. Not very much is known from this last period but it is sure that the teenagers felt themselves isolated from their extended family and peers back home.

A riot among students also took place. It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
