On Wednesday morning Chicago police promptly cut off rush hour traffic on a street just north of Millennium Park. A man had flung himself from the heights of the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel, a sleek, ultramodern skyscraper reaching 82 stories into the downtown skyline.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office announced the next day it was a suicide, the Chicago Tribune reported. The jumper’s name was James Csaszar.
Three hundred miles away, the ugly news jolted suburban Columbus, Ohio. Until November, Csaszar had worked as a Catholic priest at the Church of the Resurrection in New Albany, Ohio. Then, after misconduct allegations surfaced about the priest, the 44-year-old was placed on administrative leave.
