The Pioneer Press investigates the death of Father John Kaiser, a Minnesotan missionary in Kenya, who died mysteriously of a shotgun blast to the head alongside a road north of Nairobi in August 2000. The series reveals that Kaiser had undertaken a courageous campaign against President Daniel Moi. The stories refute the Kenyan authorities' conclusion that the priest committed suicide. "In fact, [we] were told by a member of the Kenyan government how he was killed by police officers," Laszewski reports.
CBS 60 Minutes shadows "the most extensive foreign murder investigation in FBI history" - the death of Father John Kaiser, an American Catholic Priest in Kenya. While the FBI final conclusion was that Kaiser killed himself, several members of Congress believed he was murdered. CBS reported on "a strong potential motive for killing - that the priest was helping several young women sue a powerful Kenyan cabinet minister for rape." The priest also documented severe ethnic clashes in Kenya, and developed evidence that the brutal regime of President Daniel arap Moi was behind the violence. The reporters expose sloppy detective work on the case.
