Title: Relic of St. Laurence O'Toole stolen from Dublin cathedral
Post by: biro on March 05, 2012, 11:50:13 AM
A relic of Roman Catholic St. Laurence O'Toole was stolen from a cathedral (http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2012/03/04/900-year-old-saints-heart-vanishes-from-cathedral/?hpt=hp_t3) in Dublin, Ireland. It had been stored in a wooden case, in a cage.

From the article:

The bars were wrenched open, allowing access to the heart-shaped wooden box that held the relic bolted to a wall in Saint Lauds Chapel, Irish police said.

Security cameras cover the cathedral's welcome desk, but not the interior of the chapel or the cathedral, police said. The heart disappeared between Friday evening and Saturday noon, police said.

Crazy sacrilege! Why would they do this?

Exactly!  Why would anyone want to do this?  Could it be satanists? ???
