Disgraced “sex slave” priest Peter Miqueli — accused of embezzling $1 million from his Bronx parish to pay for kinky sessions with his S&M “master” — was found dead at his New Jersey home Thursday, police confirmed to The Post.
Brick Township police said Miqueli, 57, died at his home there but declined to provide further detail, saying the Ocean County Medical Examiner’s Office is handling the case. Miqueli resigned as pastor of St. Frances de Chantal parish in Throggs Neck in 2015 amid allegations that he swiped the cash to fund his $1,000-a-pop S&M sessions with his beefcake “master” Keith Crist.
The sordid accusations were made in a civil lawsuit brought by parishioners, who also claimed Crist would “force Father Maqueli to drink Keith Crist’s urine.” . . .
No one answered the door to Miqueli’s white ranch-style abode, which had a statue of Mary on the porch and a cross haphazardly taped to the door. Miqueli’s brother, Joseph, said he didn’t know the circumstances behind the former priest’s death.
“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. (Read more from “‘Sex Slave’ Priest Found Dead at New Jersey Home” HERE)
