CHATHAM, N.J. – Authorities say a priest was found murdered in the rectory of his northern New Jersey parish one day after police held a public safety seminar there.
Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi said Friday that the body of the Rev. Ed Hinds had wounds "consistent with a homicide."
The prosecutor would not say how the priest was killed, and no one has been arrested.
The clothed body of the 61-year-old priest was found in the morning at St. Patrick's Church in Chatham. That's about 10 miles west of Newark.
Police held a safety seminar at the church Thursday in which they fingerprinted and photographed young children.
