A disgraced New York City priest, who was accused of embezzling $1 million from his congregations and allegedly using the money for s3xual encounters with his own ‘S3x Master’, has been found dead in his New Jersey home.
Rev. Peter Miqueli, 57, was found dead at a Cornell Drive home in Brick Township last week, confirmed local cops, who did not provide more details about how the Roman Catholic priest died.
The Ocean County Medical Examiner started an investigation to determine how Miqueli died.
Miqueli resigned in December 2015 as pastor of New York City parish St. Frances de Chantal, located in the Bronx, after he was accused of living a sordid double-life as the urine-drinking s3x slave of a musclebound S&M master, Keith Crist.
The priest was alleged to have paid out $1million to bodybuilder Keith Crist, in exchange for an unspecified number of $1,000 s3xual interludes, allegedly funded by embezzling from church coffers.
Crist when located by the New York Post was unnerved by the news of the priest’s death. ‘I can’t even speak right now’ he told the newspaper before he hung up.
The priest also was alleged to have spent the money on as much as $60,000 in ‘illicit prescriptions’, according to a lawsuit filed by his parishioners.
Miqueli was even accused of using the funds to cover the cost of his $264,000 home in Brick, according to a lawsuit filed by his parishioners.
The priest’s brother Joseph said he was notified by cops about his brother’s passing, but said he didn’t have anymore information.
‘I don’t know what happened to my brother. They won’t even tell me where they found him, how they found him,’ he said.
The brother said he and Miqueli were no longer speaking, but that he texted the priest every year on his birthday, July 7.
‘No matter what he did, he was still my brother and I still love him,’ Joseph told the Post. The priest and his brother were among 12 siblings.
