Here's other footage - was at times a Theological Consultant for the WABC Network in New York and had been a professional basketball player. Father Hirten attended Franciscan University of Steubanville, and had something to do with the Knights of Columbus.

R.I.P Father - God Bless you.

I don't have faith in "media report." Anyone can have an accident from disorientation from a variety of reasons that might look intentional to an observer. Nonetheless, Fr. Hirten was one of the best human beings I ever met in life, a rare good priest.

@bveritas To be quite honest. The Police who said he committed suicide should have found out who he was before they came to a decision..

Why didn't they ask his family and friends who he was before coming to their conclusions?. How very sad. I don't think he would have killed himself deliberately. Perhaps he tripped and hit his head, perhaps he had a stroke? . He was a much loved Priest - and He had the shyness and virtue of God in his eyes. I don't think he killed himself - no vanity in him,children clearly loved him, so why would he die? Christ's love, compassion, friendship and the Holy Ghost are evident in that type of Priest. More should be done to find out what happened. Instead of treating him as just another apparent statistic. God Bless
