    Imposing and majestic, these stone slabs were placed mysteriously on a mountain in 1980 by an anonymous group. The words inscribed on them seemed innocent at first.

    Father Ryan was a popular priest who spent the last thirty years traveling the Midwest swindling millions of dollars out of people where he used the money to enrich himself, spend away, and declare bankruptcy whenever outed for falsifying his identity. Despite this, only once did law enforcement officially charge Father Ryan with crimes related to his church. But even then, he managed to essentially win the case. He’s now free and working on his next con.
