The suspicious death of a little boy named Gilbert Bonneau, who was 8-years old when he died on November 28, 1953 at an
Albany Hospital, over 52-years ago, will be investigated by Augustine Papay Jr., a Private Investigator and retired New York
City Police Homicide Detective.
William Bonneu and his family hired Mr. Papay, based in Port Jervis, NY to investigate and determine the cause
of the child’s death. At the time of his death, Gilbert was under the care and custody of St. Colman’s
Home for Children, a Catholic orphanage and home for children operated by the Sisters of The Presentation in Watervliet, NY.
The Bonneau family has
been fighting a 28-year battle seeking the truth from the Catholic Church about Gilbert’s death, amid allegations by
various witnesses who came forward, claiming that Gilbert was first beaten on the head with a stick and then smothered with
a pillow by an unidentified nun who was watching over him while he was crying in the home’s infirmary.
Mr. Papay stated that he will start
his investigation by reviewing the Gilbert Bonneau case files and by interviewing eyewitnesses who made claims of physical
and sexual abuse that allegedly took place at St. Colman’s around the time Gilbert was in their care. Mr.
Papay is also appealing to the public and all former St. Colman’s residents to come forward with any information by
calling him at Inter-Pro Investigations @ 1-866-533-5099 or e-mail him: firstname.lastname@example.org
