Prison Security Guards Attempt to Rescue Pedophile Priest from Strangling and Beating by Inmate

A security video of prison guards ferociously attempting to open the door of the cell where a convicted killer Joseph Druce was strangling and beating defrocked pedophile priest John Geoghan.

Druce, who was already serving a life sentence for killing a man who allegedly made a sexual pass at him after picking him up hitchhiking, was convicted (January 2006) of first-degree murder in the strangulation of pedophile priest John Geoghan, a central figure in Boston’s clergy sex abuse scandal. In both trials, a claim of insanity was unsuccessfully used as defense.
