    The Keepers - Netflix

    ‘The Keepers’: Netflix’s Riveting New True Crime Saga Takes On the Catholic Church

    Ryan White’s seven-episode series explores the murder of Sister Cathy Cesnik, a nun who vanished under mysterious circumstances.


    On Nov. 7, 1969, Sister Cathy Cesnik, a 26-year-old Catholic nun, vanished under what were immediately suspicious circumstances. Having recently left her job at the all-girls Keough High School in Baltimore in order to teach at a public high school alongside roommate Sister Russell Phillips, Cesnik departed her apartment on the night in question around 6:30 p.m. to go to the Edmondson Village shopping center to cash a paycheck, pick up some buns at the bakery, and buy an engagement present for her younger sister Marilyn. Hours later, her car was found—parked at an odd angle, a block away from her residence. There was mud on its tires, a twig near its steering wheel, and no signs of Sister Cathy. It would be two long months before her body was found at a remote garbage dump near Lansdowne.

    The mystery of who killed Sister Cathy—a crime followed by the murder of a neighboring Catholic girl named Joyce Malecki—is the hook of The Keepers, Netflix’s new seven-episode series, premiering this Friday, May 19.

    Following in the footsteps of Making a Murderer, HBO’s The Jinx, and the granddaddy of such true-crime investigations, Errol Morris’ 1988 documentary The Thin Blue Line, Ryan White’s multi-part documentary is, in one sense, an act of cinematic sleuthing, aimed at solving a cold case through rigorous reexamination of evidence and suspects. Yet what differentiates it from its ancestors is that the secrets it uncovers have to do with far more than a simple homicide. That’s because what White exposes, with heartrending clarity and empathy, is an honest-to-goodness conspiracy involving sexual abuse and the Catholic Church. It’s Spotlight redux, albeit with far fewer heroes, far more horror, and far too many unanswered questions.
    This looks like it's going to be a good one! For the trailer and more on the series:

    The Jinx is great!!! And I think Durst's trial is coming up before too long. He's already been transferred to LA jail I think.
