Sister Katherine and Sister
Elizabeth were talking over dinner about the reasons why they
became nuns. Sister Katherine said that she became a nun because
of her religion and because she wanted to do good things for
others. Sister Elizabeth was a little skiddish about telling why.
It's not that it was something to be ashamed of, but she just
didn't want Sister Katherine to know the truth. So after much
debate about why Sister Elizabeth wouldn't tell, Sister Katherine
gave up and they both went to bed. But Sister Elizabeth woke up
in the middle of the night after hearing something in the chapel.
She got dressed and went to the chapel to see what it was. When
she got in there, she saw two men stealing all the precious
jewels from their cases. She was scared so she tried to hide from
them, but she tripped in the rush to find a hiding place and the
men heard her.
Sister Elizabeth was
found in her room the next morning, dead. Sister Katherine had
went into her room to try to convince her to tell her why she had
become a nun and instead found this. She immediately ran to get
the priest and called 911 to report it. Within half an hour, the
police and many detectives were their to investigate the crime.
Among them were detectives Lauren Robinson and Christian Davis.
Who Sister Elizabeth was trying to lead to faith.
Sister Katherine quickly
recognized them and talked to them to ask what they thought had
happened. Detective Davis replied that a thief had stolen some jewels and
Sister Elizabeth had evidently seen them. But, they had seen her
Then they interviewed
Sister Katherine about what had happened last night and she told
them about the dinner and their discussion. The detectives didn't
find any of that important so they didn't even include it in the
Later that day, while
working on the case, Detective Robinson made a discovery in
Sister Elizabeth's room. A diary that Sister Elizabeth had
written in everyday for two years. But, the last entry was from
two weeks ago. She had run out of paper in it and must have got a
new one. But they couldn't find it she did.
Upon reading it, they
made a huge discovery, Sister Elizabeth had written about her
past before becoming a nun in one of the entries. They were
shocked when they found out that she had once been a drug addict
and had even been arrested a time or two. But at the age of 22,
she became part of the church and at the age of 24 had become a
nun. That was 12 years ago.
After reading further
into the book they learned that her old friends from those drug
addict times had not forgiven her for abandoning them like that.
And they promised that they would come after her one day when she
least expected it. But the diary failed to mention their
While Detective Robinson
studied the diary, Detective Davis went back to the precinct and
looked for any files about Sister Elizabeth's arrest. He had a
theory that the person who killed her might have been arrested
with her before. He found the files, and turns out that she was
arrested with three other people for possession of drugs. Among
them, one of them had died a year earlier from a drug overdose
and the other two were still living. But one of them had changed
their name since then so he had to track down the file that
contained their birth name in order to find the name that they
had changed it to. He searched for hours and finally found it.
But when he learned their new name, he nearly fainted. It was
Sister Mary Jane, one of Sister Elizabeth's close friends that
had just recently became a nun about 4 months ago.
The other name was Marcus
Anderson, who he did not recognize. But decided to do research on
him as well as the other nun. He took two policemen with him and
searched Sister Mary Jane's room from head to toe. He hadn't
found anything after an hour of searching and had almost given up
until he found a loose floorboard in the bottom of her closet. He
pried it up and found the bag of jewels and Sister Elizabeth's
Sister Mary Jane was
arrested and taken in to be questioned. But she refused to tell
the names of the two men who helped her. But after three hours of
questioning, she gave out and gave them the names of the people
and told them where to find them.
The next day, the
detective arrived at an old abandoned apartment complex with a
squad of police. They charged into the building and found two men
lying on the floor, high. After taking them to the precinct and
waiting a day for the drugs to get out of their system, the
detectives were able to question them.
They told the police that
Sister Mary Jane was actually one of their close friends who had
only joined the monastery to get close to Sister Elizabeth and
find to give them a way into the chapel to get the jewels. They
were the two men that Sister Elizabeth had been arrested with all
those years ago. One of them had been assumed dead many years
ago, even though he was still alive. So he appeared in the system
as diseased. Which was perfect if you wanted to commit a
Sister Mary Jane was the
one who killed Sister Elizabeth while the other two got the
jewels. But they all were tried and convicted of murder in the
first degree. They are all on death row and all have the same
Sister Katherine never
fully got over the death of her dearly beloved friend but did
successfully help the detectives find the faith that Sister
Elizabeth had tried to.
