Sister Cathy Cesnik was a beloved daughter, sister, friend and English teacher who for some time shortly before her murder, taught at the Archbishop Keough High School in Baltimore, Maryland.

On Nov 7, 1969, Cathy disappeared. Her body was discovered on January 3, 1970 in the Baltimore suburb of Lansdowne. Cathy had been killed, but by who? And as importantly, why?

The case of Sister Cathy Cesnik was far more complex than it was reported at the time of her death. With more victims claimed by the tragedy and survivors years later still haunted by the injustices served to them, the story inspired Netflix documentary film makers to create a seven part series entitled: The Keepers.

The Keepers

A Netflix Original Documentary 

The Keepers was met with critical acclaim upon its release, with global reviews and awards for its creators: Tripod Media an Emmy Award winning documentary series for Netflix Originals. 

"Where other true crime hits have followed a linear chronology, The Keepers hops between 1969, the 1990s and today, striking a fine balance between narrative structure – a wow moment at the end of every episode – and respect for a subject that doesn’t need or deserve sensationalism." The Guardian - Jack Seale

Whilst Gemma Hoskins will forever be entwined in the story of Sister Cathy Cesnik and the survivors of Keough, she urges for readers to explore the Tripod Media teams, other productions.
