About this title


Roger Vaillancourt was brutally murdered in a Minnesota cornfield 48 years ago.

Until now, the silence surrounding his bizarre death has been deafening. Finally, through family, friends, and one priest's tireless investigation, the story of Roger Vaillancourt's gruesome death will be told...

After a night of drinking and bizarre sexual teasing at The Kitten Club on October 6, 1957, in Mille Lacs County, MN, Roger Vaillancourt, 17, was allegedly hit by a car. His subsequent death was ruled accidental. Many people in the community knew more about Roger's death but remained silent due to fears of retaliation. The story has been buried for 48 years...until now.

More than just a story of torture, sex, murder, and an official cover-up, Raising Roger's Cross is a spiritual journey of reverence and healing.

"Roger's winning smile and life were brutally taken away from his family and friends in 1957. His death and the way it was handled have affected his family and many others throughout the years. It is time for justice and healing to take place." JUDY FERNHOLZ, Roger Vaillancourt's sister

About the Author:

Father Charles Kunkel, O.S.C., is a Crosier, living in a community in Onamia, MN, with a special ministry of the Cross. He hopes to write other stories of the Cross that are presented to him.
