by guest writer Mike Ference, detailing the experience of having
a son get shot in the back of the head and then to be treated as
an impediment to Wuerl’s rise to power.  Edited as to its syntax.
Diplomatically abridged as to its contents.

 

 

The sodomizing of youth by Catholic clergy members and then covered
up by church hierarchs was something seldom discussed.  It was seldom
discussed until the media broke open the seals of secrecy that were once
glazed over Cardinal Bernard Law’s disgraced Boston Archdiocese.

It was twenty-three years ago when I was forced to begin investigating
similar things in the county where sits Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.  This
was because a fifteen year old youth allegedly preoccupied with the
Occult,  Satanism, and devil-worship attempted to murder my son,
Adam, on a school bus.  The same youth then killed himself.

My investigation began in December of 1989.  This means that I was
forced to start my work thirteen calendar years before veteran journal-
ists of the Boston Globe exposed Catholic Church red hatter Bernie
Law for having habitually covered the criminal actions of priests.  Ten
years after having begun my investigations, the Philadelphia district at-
torney’s office put to bed the prosecution of every Philadelphia area
cleric accused of the same old crimes and the same old cover ups.
Being a molester in Pennsylvania was a lucrative pastime, at the time.

The attack on my son took place on the morning of December 5, 1989,
around 8:00 am.  A bus carrying Serra Catholic High School students
began its approach toward the school’s entrance doors.  A bus loaded
with dozens of teenagers was beginning to cross onto Serra Catholic
school grounds when the would-be assassin pulled out a loaded hand-
gun and blasted a shot into the back of my son’s head.  He next placed
the gun to his temple and fired the second shot.

Two ambulances transferred my son and the shooter to the McKeesport
Hospital.  Both young men were admitted to the same emergency room,
separated by the curtains surrounding their beds.  A telephone call from
Brother Chuck, the guidance counselor of Serra Catholic, served notice
to our family to get to the McKeesport Hospital Emergency Room as
soon as possible.

Ironically, my wife, my eldest son, and I arrived at the hospital before
the ambulances did.  While a paramedic was pushing a gurney through
a hallway, I shouted to the man, “If that’s Adam Ference, tell him his 
parents are here.”  The body was completely covered.  Deep-down in-
side, and without saying a word, I hoped and I prayed it wasn’t Adam.
Seconds later came another gurney, being pushed through the hallway.
It was Adam, sitting up.  He was conscious, but I wasn’t sure how
alert he was.

A nurse came to escort me back to where my son was.  I still didn’t
know what happened.  A disheveled detective from the McKeesport
Police Department approached my wife and I.  He recklessly pulled a
gun from a brown paper bag and asked if we had ever seen the wea-
pon before.  Confused and bewildered, we shook our heads sideways,
quietly saying no.  A teacher would then pull the detective to the side
and tell him that we weren’t the parents he needed to talk to.

I watched an ER room’s bed sheets get saturated with blood as the
shooter lay dead, no doubt from the 32-caliber self-inflicted gunshot
wound.  It was a shot taken seconds after the shooter blasted my
son’s skull with his first shot, done while my son sat directly in front
of him, half asleep.

Minutes later, a nurse called me into the emergency room, to see my
son.  I tried to reassure him that everything would be alright, as he
seemed to daze in and out of consciousness.  I caught myself glanc-
ing back and forth from the wound in the back of my son’s head to
the blood-stained sheets of the shooter in the bed next to my son.
It were as if I was watching a tennis match or a ping pong game.

I prayed and promised God that I would do whatever I could to make
things right, not knowing what that meant, and still not knowing what
exactly happened.  Now, I knew that Adam could never intentionally
harm anyone with a gun.  But, I figured that he might have accidental-
ly tripped someone, resulting in multiple gun shots being unleashed from
a loaded weapon.  So, I kept promising God that I would do whatever
it took to make things right.  Sadly, I heard a father crying; weeping
over his son’s dead body.  All but for the grace of God, the father in
anguish could have been me.

Twenty-three years later, I’m still trying to keep the promise I made
in the McKeesport ER.  Needless to say, Donald Wuerl has been a
ruthless antagonist, preventing the truth from being uncovered. This
Wuerl keeps us in the dark, in so many diabolical ways.

Several weeks after the shooting, my son was well on his way to re-
covery.  Several weeks after the shooting, a seasoned law enforce-
ment officer who actively participated in the investigation, ended up
sitting in my living room, alleging to my wife and I that the investiga-
tion of my son’s attempted murder was deliberately quashed by the
McKeesport Police Chief (Thomas Brletic) and his investigating of-
ficers.  The man who alleged this to me was and is William Scully.

At the time, Scully was the Public Safety Officer of Clairton.  At the
time, Clairton no longer had a police force, due to the economic woes
which followed the demolition of the Pittsburgh steel industry.  Prior
to being Clairton’s public safety director, Scully was assistant chief
of police for the same town of Clairton and served several years as
a police officer there.

To compensate for the case being allegedly quashed, Scully provid-
ed me with specific notes and details about the shooter.  He alleged
that the shooter was sexually abused by Fr. John Wellinger, a parish
priest at Holy Spirit Church in West Mifflin, PA.  Prior to Wellinger’s
assignment at Holy Spirit, he was an assistant pastor of Saint Clare
of Assisi Church, in Clairton.  The shooter served as an altar boy for
Fr. Wellinger at St. Clare’s.

According to several sources, the shooter was often an after-school
guest of Wellinger, at the parish rectory house, along with other boys.
It was a parish house equipped with a pool table, pinball machines
and other facilities which keeps young boys amused for hours.

Scully also provided specific information about Wellinger allegedly
harming a teenager from Holy Spirit Church in West Mifflin.  This
harming allegedly occurred circa 1987 or 1988.  I even received an
email from the alleged victim in 2011 that suffices as evidence that
easily confirms my allegations on the topic.

As time progressed, I would eventually speak with several sources.
The sources included a retired police chief of West Mifflin, as well
as a police officer of the same West Mifflin whose son was alleged-
ly molested by the same John Wellinger.  My sources also included
several ladies who worked along side Wellinger at Holy Spirit Parish.

There was even the matter of a woman who may have known John
Wellinger intimately.  Added to the list is the former Pittsburgh Post
Gazette investigative reporter who alleged that Wellinger once made
a homosexual pass at him.  An additional source included a Florida
man who once visited Wellinger at Holy Spirit Parish, and alleged
that Wellinger wanted to perform an unnatural act on his person.
Plus, there was the teenager to whom Wellinger allegedly supplied
a spiked alcoholic beverage which knocked the youth out for hours.

Concerning the youth, he eventually returned to consciousness and
dialed 911.  He then allegedly staggered down apartments stairs, to
meet an awaiting ambulance which allegedly took the youth to then
Presbyterian University Hospital (now part of the University of Pitts-
burgh Medical Center).

According to the allegations, he and his family were victimized yet
again, in the alleged cover-up that followed.  It’s sad that it has taken
over 23 years for me to release my information with just a scant hope
of justice finally being served.  Tragically speaking, as I have tried to
draw attention to the various crimes and cover ups, I can only imagine
how many more victimscould have been saved from being victimized,
if only Wuerl and government officials would have applied an element
of human decency and did what needed to have been done.

Michael Unglo is one person who immediately comes to mind.  Mike
committed suicide shortly after the Diocese of Pittsburgh, under Bish-
op David Zubik, stopped financing his psychiatric treatment.  Now, the
Pittsburgh diocese had already payed $300,000 in psychiatric bills for
Michael.  But, Mike suffered from flashbacks, due to the alleged mo-
lestations of the defrocked Richard Dorsch who receives a thousand
dollar a month stipend (pension) from the diocese.

Meanwhile, homosexual con artist Fr James Torquato immediately
canceled all business contracts with his accuser’s uncle, and Wuerl
ratified Fr. Torquato’s act of economic terrorism, as if Wuerl were
performing the terrorism himself.  Basically, James Torquato black-
mailed his accuser’s uncle.  The uncle was to get Torquato’s accus-
er to retract his accusations against Torquato or else lose significant
income.

I would like to point out something about my son’s attempted murder.
The shooter was not sitting is his regular seat that day, nor did he get
on at his regular stop.  My son did sit in his regular seat, close to the
window.  The shooter was allegedly in the aisle seat behind him.  This
means that he was originally catty-corner to Adam.  Well, he alleged-
ly switched seated and was now exactly behind Adam.

The exact conjecture as to what was transpiring during the attempted
murder of my son was thwarted by parents not allowing their children
to be interviewed by law enforcement investigators.  Depositions exist
which can be supplied as proof of a community-wide cover up.

Concerning Adam’s case, I had sought help from many people in gov-
ernment.  I was referred to an Allegheny County detective by form-
er a PA State Trooper, named Robert Griffin.  Griffin was brought
into the case in 1989 and  investigated the Satanic and Occult inter-
ests of my son’s shooter and the shooter’s friends.  The detective to
whom I was referred simply stated that the Diocese of Pittsburgh
was covering up crimes for years.  The offending priests would be
shuffled from one parish to another, the detective alleged.  He made
it sound as if there was nothing he could do about it.

There is a long list of state troopers who did absolutely nothing.  Like-
wise, the same nothing came from former Pennsylvania Senator and
Catholic Church lobbyist, Rick Santorum.  Senator Arlen Spector al-
so chose to ignore my case, as did Congressman Mike Doyle.  Plus,
Carol Burke, Chief of Staff for State Rep David Levdansky, simply
advised me to get over it.

An FBI agent did exist who was well-aware of Wellinger’s alleged
sexual shenanigans, but the agent was preoccupied with the investi-
gation into a drug raid gone bad which resulted in a fellow agent be-
ing killed.  So, the Pittsburgh diocese has been getting a free pass,
ever since the tenure of Anthony Bevilacqua.  Include Wuerl’s ten-
ure also, especially in light of the fact that Wuelr paid no price for
his alleged absence of cooperativeness during an investigation that
resulted in the arrests of Wolk, Zula, and Pucci.  Wuerl also paid
no price thus far, for ratifying the Torquato retaliations.

Allegheny County’s Courthouse is located on Grant Street, in down-
town Pittsburgh.  Supposedly, justice is served there.  Sadly enough,
some of the PA judges were bought and sold like stolen merchandise
at outdoor flea markets.  I cite the infamous Luzerne County “Cash
for Kids” scandal that sent two greed-infested Pennsylvania judges to
federal prisons, after years of locking up children in private juvenile de-
tention centers for things as petty as summary offenses.

The detention centers are owned by Gregory Zappala, son of former
Pennsylvania Supreme Court Chief Justice Stephen Zappala, Sr and
brother of Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala, Jr.
Sadly enough, one of the victims of this barbaric practice would end
up committing suicide after two incarcerations.  His death would take
place on the 10th of June, 2010, the same day when Allegheny County
District Attorney Stephen Zappala was sworn in as a member of the
board that oversees clergy sex abuse allegation, under the auspices
of the United States Bishop’s Conference.

It’s pertinent to point out that the attempted murder of my son took
place in McKeesport, PA.  It’s a section of the Mon Valley jokingly
referred to as Mob Valley.  It’s the last place one expects to find any
semblance of justice.  McKeesport is filled with case after case of
systematic and deliberate cover ups of criminal behavior, most often
alleging McKeesport police and democratic officials as being at the
center of the alleged cover ups.

Some allegations involved 1] a dead teenage girl whose body was
found in a McKeesport cemetery, 2] a woman held captive for al-
most a decade by a McKeesport School district security guard, and
3] the Cornell Elementary School scandal which allegedly involved
two McKeesport teachers doing their best to imitate dogs in heat,
while two other teachers allegedly did their best to act like watch-
dogs.  All actions were either well concealed or never happened.
None the less, the allegation that Fr. John Wellinger molested the
shooter of my son,  as well as had drugged-up the drink of another
youth, were things stated in Scully’s notes.  Thus, these allegations
came from someone who had official status.

I’ve also met and talked with yet, another accuser of former Pitts-
burgh clergy member, John Wellinger.  This accuser was one of the
plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit against the Diocese of Pittsburgh.
His parents were parishioners of Holy Spirit Church in West Mifflin.

For now, I want to caution people from outside of Pennsylvania that,
if you’re contemplating moving here, you would do better to just stay
put.  Jim Potts, founder of Democracy Rising and advocate for hon-
est government in Pennsylvania, opined on a Pittsburgh radio station
that “Pennsylvania may be the most corrupt state in America.”
I agree with Potts.  However, I would extend his opinion to include
most third world countries.

Consider the following before you plan a visit to Pennsylvania, or
worse yet, to move to this commonwealth:   1] the Cash for Kids
Scandal;  2] the Jerry Sandusky and Penn State scandal;  3] the
grand jury investigations into the rape and sodomizing of innocent
children in the Philadelphia Archdiocese;  4] the Tanya Kash case
involving a McKeesport School District security guard allegedly
holding a teenager captive for almost ten years;  5] Cardinal Don-
ald Wuerl’s proven triple cover-up of Wolk, Zula, and Pucci, by
which he ignored the Child Protective Services Act and was ac-
cused of having been uncooperative during the criminal investiga-
tion of the three priests he tried to conceal followed by Wuerl
facing zero accountability for his evil commissions and equally
evil omissions.

All of these cases allege police and government officials being all
too willing to delay or hamper investigations involving children in
harm’s way.  In a Philadelphia archdiocesan case, a ten-year-old
boy was alleged to have been sodomized by his teacher in a park.
When the teacher had satisfied his barbaric cravings, the alleged-
ly victimized youth was forced to make his way home on his own,
bleeding from his rectum.

Pennsylvania is a pro-pedophile state, in my opinion.  My opinion,
of course, comes from personal experience and a lot of investigat-
ing, done free of charge.  So, you can either take my word for it or
risk your own children’s lives to prove me wrong.  In Pennsylvania,
even adults were the victims of power abuse.  Concerning this, you
can either take my word for it or else risk your own future to prove
me wrong.

About victimsofrapebythercc

The Catechism offers a clear moral teaching: "Rape is the forcible violation of the sexual intimacy of another person. It does injury to justice and charity. Rape deeply wounds the respect, freedom, and physical and moral integrity to which every person has a right. It causes grave damage that can mark the victim for life. It is always an intrinsically evil act. Graver still is the rape of children committed by parents (incest) or those responsible for the education of the children entrusted to them." (no. 2356) Note that rape is "an intrinsically evil act," meaning that it is evil at its very root, nothing justifies it, and it is objectively a mortal sin. An evil act was done against me, a crime, by a priest at St Thomas More Parish in Durham, NH. An evil and a crime I will no longer keep silent about. Those who perpetrate crimes against children, especially those of the Roman Catholic Church, should all be punished for their crimes against children. Anything less would be criminal.

  1. Dear Mr. Ference,

    Having just read your above recalling of all that you have dealt with, it enrages any truly God fearing person to see these accounts; past & present, here and across the earth. My sympathies for your family, particularly Adam.

    This giant ‘goliath’ of perversion of alleged decency, seems to know no shame. They will cover each other’s compromised ‘heinies’ like the false and sinister ministers of the temple in Jerusalem also did. They also had plenty of perversion and corruption to hide.

    Remember how Jesus directly and completely blew away their whole feeble and vain attempt to catch Him by a ‘technicality’, or an incomplete application of the spirit of His law when, He said, ‘…he that is without sin, let him cast the first stone…’. None of those rats could say a word. The prostitute was free, Jesus said turn from your former bondage and obey my word.

    Though not the same scenario, the attempted set up of the shooter (accumulated and building up over time), due to his treatment by false gospel ministers, I can’t help thinking that it had to cross their minds, that they would ‘kill 2 birds with one stone’.

    The shooter obviously was desperate, and your son the target in perverse hope that both would be dead. This at least to your relative relief did not occur. Thank The Lord for that.

    I had just read 2 or so articles on the reopened case of the violently murdered nun from a school in Baltimore. You’re no doubt familiar with the case of Catherine Cesnik. She was a nun from a Catholic high school, who also helped female students with trauma, etc. concerning abuse forced upon them by 2 priests, and sometimes aided by a gynecologist named Richter. Cesnik was murdered, but due to where she was murdered, the jurisdiction of authority and the nepotistic intertwining of the police and dicese, she was not discovered until her body had been in decay, though it was dumped in late fall of 1969.

    Let me be truthfully honest, from all the evidence that has come forth, regarding the priests, nuns, schools, practices, doctrines and institutions run by them, seriously, the worship of The Lord as He pleases; never mind the ‘…as he chooses…’ bit, minute change to the Constitution, that false representation of an alleged Gospel, should also be avoided, or fleed from.

    They stand in the way of, hinder or otherwise supplant the Gospel of The Saviour, placing their words above His Word. That is why they have descended so far into debauchery, and that it cannot continue to be concealed. Their whole system is like a seething pressure-cooker, or like the volcano Krakatoa, which when it blew in the 1800’s took half of the island with it, and left a huge amount of ash in the atmosphere for months or years.

    In conclusion, -sorry if I got long winded-, my admiration and proper salute to you for your determination, persistence and fearlessness in standing up to these robed and uniformed ‘Boss Hoggs’, Boss Tweeds, Boss Daleys -of ‘diss, dat, deez, dem, and doze’, ‘Sick-ago I’ll-annoy’ [in]fame. Until I read your account, I thought ‘I’ll-annoy’ was the worst and most corrupt state, that or NY or CA, but now ‘Penns-will-rape-ya’, just might ‘take the cake’, and eat it too…at taxpayer funding.

    My prayer for your ultimate success is offered, and I don’t believe that people who ‘got away’, have actually truly gotten away with any of their misdeeds, neither individually, nor cumulatively.

    Do take good care

  2. Thanks for sharing this story. Do you know where “Wolk, Zula, and Pucci” are now? Have more victims of Wolk come forth? I would have to get additional information but I strongly suspect that my friend killed himself as a result of suffering from abuse by Wolk.
