The Burning Cradle: Jan Patterson
In Project: The Burning Cradle

Jan Patterson is a member of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, who attended the SNAP conference in Denver and spoke to Paula Rhoads Hook about her son, who committed suicide.

After investigating, Jan and her husband learned that numerous teens and young adults associated with their Catholic parish had also committed suicide. Eventually, they linked these suicides to their sexual abuse by one Catholic priest.

This is perhaps the most persuasive episode for why child sexual abuse is anything but harmless.
