Authorities probing the prison death of defrocked priest John Geoghan say his killer was fellow inmate Joseph Druce, a convicted murderer with a long-standing hatred of homosexuals. Officials say Druce planned the murder well in advance. Geoghan was at the center of the sex-abuse scandal that rocked the Boston archdiocese. Hear NPR's Anthony Brooks.
