Parish members mourn suicide of priest at Cudahy church

More than 200 mourners gathered Monday at a Cudahy church to remember Father Jan Kieliszewski, who was found dead Sunday morning at nearby Nativity of the Lord Parish.

The Milwaukee County medical examiner's office ruled Kieliszewski's death a suicide, according to the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

Archdiocese spokesman Julie Wolf said the priest had been ill for a couple of weeks.

But Wolf said she knew of no other circumstances that might have prompted Kieliszewski's suicide, such as a disciplinary action or investigation. And his name does not appear in the thousands of pages of sex abuse documents released by the archdiocese as part of its bankruptcy earlier this month.

"There's nothing, nothing in his file that would explain this," Wolf said. "It was a complete shock to everybody."
