As the focus over Maria James' murder narrows onto the church, Adam reveals new information about a second abusive priest within the family's local parish.

Rachael Brown investigates the priest's past and discovers a dark and disturbing history.

Warning: this episode contains material that may be confronting for some listeners.

Correction: This episode was republished on 6/7/2017 to correct a line of script that referred to Father O'Keefe as K, rather than by his full name.

Thomas O'Keeffe and John Cain
Father Thomas O'Keeffe (left) and former Victorian Premier John Cain (right). A witness said he saw a man who 'looked like John Cain' on the day of Maria James' murder at the nearby church. Neither the ABC nor the witness are suggesting Mr Cain had anything to do with these events, but was referenced by the witness as a likeness for the person they saw.
