Rene Robert, a Catholic priest, devoted his life to helping the less fortunate. He was regarded as a “living saint” in the tight-knit community of St. Augustine, Florida.
But when Fr. Rene began helping ex-convicts after they’d been released from prison, the people closest to him worried that he was putting his life at risk—especially the local sheriff, David Shoar, one of Fr. Rene’s longtime friends.
So, in April, 2016, when Fr. Rene failed to show up at a church service, Sheriff Shoar immediately put his best detectives on the case and local residents began searching for the beloved priest. It quickly became apparent, however, that he was not just missing—someone had taken Fr. Rene Robert against his will.
