Netflix has unveiled the trailer for its next addictive true crime docu-series.
The Keepers examines the 1969 murder of Baltimore nun Cathy Cesnik, a grisly crime that has haunted the city for years.
It promises to expose a web of corruption, sexual abuse and lies within the Baltimore’s entrenched Catholic community.
The film was created by Tripod Media and Film 45. It will be launched on Netflix on May 19.
Cathy Cesnik was murdered in November 1969. She was 26 and taught English teacher at Archbishop Keough High School.
Hunters stumbled across her decomposing body two months after she vanished while out buying an engagement gift for her cousin.
She had a hole in the back of her skull which police said was the result of a blunt force trauma.
They found the car she had been driving unlocked and parked illegally a block away from her apartment but there were few other clothes.
No one has ever been charged with her murder despite rampant suspicion it was committed by priests to cover up a deep history of abuse and corruption.
The documentary about her death brings together her former students and friends who launched their own investigation in to her murder last year.
