The article does not specify what type of abuse. According to the statement on the website, "This administrative leave is for the purpose of investigation and does not imply any determination as to the truth or falsity of the complaint."
WGRZ Channel 2 reports that the Buffalo Catholic Diocese released a list of 42 priests accused of sexual abuse, although 24 of them are now dead.
