Priest, another man presumed dead in Detroit River
GROSSE ILE, Mich. Authorities searched for a priest and another man who were presumed dead after a boat capsized in the Detroit River, police said Monday. The incident occurred Sunday near Grosse Ile, a suburban island between Michigan and Ontario, Canada. It's very unusual for a 39-foot boat to capsize, Grosse Ile police Lt. Kenneth Pelland said. Rooney, 66, a native of Ireland, was pastor at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Trenton, his latest assignment during more than 30 years as a priest. Horrible for the community, Pelland said.
