CHICAGO (WLS) — Archbishop Paul Marcinkus ran the Vatican bank.
When the Cicero native died, he left behind a mysterious financial scandal. But he also left a will that the I-Team has obtained.
Paul Marcinkus was the highest ranking American churchman ever in Rome.
For nearly two decades, Marcinkus was the pope’s C.F.O. with control of the Vatican’s vast wealth.
But that was also Marcinkus’ undoing. He provoked a billion-dollar scandal that he never explained, which sent the I-Team looking for answers in the last will and testament of God’s banker.
