Two teenage boys were arrested Monday for allegedly beating a Catholic priest in a Springfield park two weeks ago.Why they were in the park that night? We still haven't heard why the priest was in the park that night...In fact, why were any of them there considering earlier reports that it is a cruising spot for homosexuals?
Police, however, were tight-lipped on why they think Jamie E. Gibson, 17, and a 15-year-old boy attacked Monsignor Eugene E. Costa, 54, in Douglas Park on Dec. 21, or why they think the two were in the park that night.
"We can't give the information that was given to us in the statements by these two individuals," Lt. Rickey Davis said. "But we do have a motive, and maybe that will come out in court."Maybe it will come out in court? It seems that if a credible motive is to be established, it should come out in court, if not before.
