Priest's actions, statements make him suspect

Email

The Hudson Police Department appears to have had good reason to investigate the late Father Ryan Erickson as a suspect in the February 2002 murders of Dan O'Connell and James Ellison as well as other crimes.

The 31-year-old Erickson was associate pastor for two years at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Hudson. He later moved to a church in Hurley where he was found dead after hanging himself Dec. 19.
