A tearful mom and dad told a jury today about the noose they found hanging in their son's closet.
They were followed to the witness stand by a grandfather who was a retired detective.
It was "Pop" who took the first statement from the alleged victim in this case, the 26-year-old man who has accused Father Andrew McCormick of sexually assaulting him back in 1997 when he was a 10-year-old altar boy.
"He was like a wounded animal," the silver-haired detective said of his grandson. "He was so filled with anxiety."
In short, it was a great day for the prosecution as three relatives of the alleged victim took turns burying "Father Andy."
