– A man died in Father Krystian's apartment – said the parish priest of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Sosnowiec during Sunday mass. – Father Krystian was detained and has already been released. I saw him. He apologized to me, and I apologize to you, the priest concluded, asking the faithful for forgiveness and prayers.

At the end of Sunday mass in the Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Sosnowiec, parish priest Stanisław Rozner referred in a few sentences to the events “that took place on Wednesday in the rectory building.” The police found the body of a young man in the apartment of one of the priests.

– One would like to say, my God, have you forgotten about us – the parish priest began.

– You've probably read various things. I will tell you what I saw and heard from the police here – he began. As he noted, he was not in town at that time. – A man died in Father Krystian's apartment. I didn't see him. He actually died, said the parish priest.

– I don't know his name, I don't know how old he was, because I didn't see the documents. Apparently Adam, 21 years old, said, referring to some publications about the tragedy.

– He is not an employee of the parish cemetery – the priest noted, because such information was also provided. – He was not murdered, as I heard somewhere, and no murder weapon was found – the priest continued. And he added: – He was not a priest, just a student.

“Father Krystian apologized to me, and I apologize to you”

Finally, he said that he did not know where the deceased lived. He also repeated that he does not talk about it with journalists.

– Father Krystian was detained and has already been released. I saw him. He apologized to me, and I apologize to you, concluded the parish priest, asking the faithful for forgiveness and prayers.

There were no crowds in the church, there were empty seats in the pews. But, as parishioners told us, there were a lot of people for this church. They came to celebrate the holiday – March 24 is Palm Sunday in the Catholic church.

– This shouldn't have happened – they said in an interview with us. – But we come here for faith, for prayer. Our parish priest is fine.

The young man is dead

The young man died on Wednesday in the Sosnowiec apartment of Father Krystian K., a judge of the bishop's court. The curia commented on the matter on the same day. In a statement on the website, she stated that “it was with deep sadness and disbelief that she took note of the information about the incident that took place in the apartment occupied by a priest of one of the parishes in Sosnowiec.”

Despite the resuscitation efforts undertaken by the priest and the rescuers he called medical teams failed to save the life of a young man present in the apartment. Routine investigations by the prosecutor's office are being carried out. The Diocesan Curia in Sosnowiec fully cooperates with the procedural authorities,” assured representatives of the diocese.

As the reporter of “Fakty TVN” Paweł Szot found out, the priest who heard the charges had been detained by the police in the past on suspicion of drug possession. The priest – as reported by the prosecutor's office – this time he had it with him prohibited substances.

The priest was charged and suspended

– The collected evidence allowed for the presentation of a charge of violation of the Act on Counteracting Drug Addiction, Article 62, section 1. It concerns the possession of drugs prohibited by the Act in the form of a psychotropic substance. The described act is punishable by up to 3 years' imprisonment – said Zbigniew Pawlik, head of the Sosnowiec-Północ District Prosecutor's Office.

He added that the suspect pleaded not guilty and refused to provide explanations. In the main case – the death in the clergyman's apartment – investigators are waiting for the results of toxicological and histopathological tests.

– The priest has been suspended until the matter is clarified – priest Przemysław Lech from the press office of the diocesan curia in Sosnowiec told tvn24.pl.
