DNA Results Revealed as Netflix Revisits Nun's Murder

Authorities in Maryland say DNA from a priest's exhumed body doesn't match evidence in the decades-old slaying of a Baltimore nun.
A sample of Maskell's remains were sent to Bode Cellmark Forensics in Lorton, Virgina for development of a DNA profile, a standard practice for Baltimore County police in such cases. They mean current forensic technology doesn't provide a physical link between him and the crime scene, she said. Sister Catherine Ann Cesnik disappeared in November of that year before her body turned up in a field in January with blunt force trauma to the head.
One of the most promising leads to solving the nearly 50-year-old murder of Sister Cathy Cesnik has gone cold.
Detectives, who have been trying to solve the nun's murder since January 1970, exhumed Maskell's body on February 28 to compare Maskell's DNA to evidence from the crime scene.
Maskell denied the accusations and was never charged.
Over the years, police have developed DNA profiles of around six suspects, none of whom match the crime scene evidence.
"Our office has received quite a few important calls that we intend to share with the police", she said. According to the Archdiocese of Baltimore's website, "When suspicions arose regarding Maskell in 1994, he was interviewed by the Police and also by The Baltimore Sun about the allegations of sexual abuse and also about the murder of Sr".
There have been no matches of the Cesnik crime scene DNA profile with any DNA profile from the national database, police said. "So the theory that she was killed because of something she knew in the Catholic Church was something we've been looking at".
The Keepers attempts to uncover the truth behind the murder of Cesnik, but as much as the show is a murder mystery, it's also a story about the women like Lancaster who have accused Father Maskell of abuse. And who killed her? They are cautiously optimistic that the renewed, intense interest in the case may generate useful new leads and encourage people with solid evidence about Sister Cathy's murder to come forward to police.
Joanne Suder, an attorney who represents victims with abuse claims against Maskell, said more people are talking about the case in light of recent developments, and she believes that will turn up new information for the investigation.
Detectives would not reveal what evidence remains of the nun's death.
