Friar Stephen Baker, 62, a Franciscan friar accused of sexually abusing students at a Catholic high school in Ohio and Pennsylvania, committed suicide Saturday morning at St. Bernadine Monastery in Hollidaysburg, Pa.
The police declined to say what type of self-inflicted wounds were found on Stephen Baker or whether a suicide note was found.
Friar Stephen Baker was named in a legal settlement last week involving 11 men who accused him of sexually abusing them at a northeast John F. Kennedy High School in Warren, Oh., from 1986-90.
