Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Catholic Church Sets Up Fund for Sex Abuse Victims
Ohio Catholic leaders have started $3 million fund to help victims of childhood sexual abuse. But some victims say the Counseling Assistance Fund is a publicity stunt.
The fund was started by Diocese of Cleveland, seven other Roman Catholic dioceses in Ohio and the Parma Byzantine Eparchy.
Claims are independently reviewed and if approved, the victims can get mental health counseling that’s not provided by the church.
Timothy Luckhaupt is executive director of the Catholic Conference of Ohio which started the fund. He says the church wants to help victims.
