Unpublished Sandy Hook Files: Meet ‘Monsignor Meth’ Kevin Wallin
Of all the strange characters in the Sandy Hook massacre and subsequent cover-up, Monsignor Kevin Wallin is one of the strangest. Forced to leave the Bridgeport Diocese, of which Newtown, CT was a part of, Wallin was allegedly a gay, dross-dressing, showtunes loving defrocked Priest who started partying it up on the gay circuit of nightlife.
When Msgr. Kevin Wallin was arrested in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre on federal drug charges he was raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars per month. Feds claim that Wallin was having methamphetamine mailed to him from co-conspirators in California. The drug sales were supposedly coordinated out of Wallin’s apartment in nearby Waterbury, Connecticut. It has also been alleged that Wallin was able to purchase a small adult video and sex toy shop (called “Land of Oz and Dorothy’s Place”) in nearby North Haven, Connecticut. Some say that Wallin purchased the brick and mortar sex shop for the sole purpose of laundering the drug money he was making. The sex shop also sold “smoking accessories” and other
drug-use related paraphernalia. Wallin is alleged to have used “Land of Oz” to launder much of the money he was allegedly making in weekly meth sales.
The 61-year-old Msgr. Wallin was said to be a close personal friend of former Bridgeport Bishops Walter Curtiss and Edward Egan, who later famously served as the Archbishop of New York. Wallin is said to have served as Egan’s personal secretary when he was Bishop of Bridgeport.
Egan’s successor was a man named William Lori, and he later appointed Wallin to the Rector of the St. Augustine Cathedral Parish in Bridgeport. According to the “Connecticut Post”, when Wallin was serving at the cathedral, “The priest’s behavior had become erratic, and he would disappear for days at a time.” According to this same source, “Church staff also saw him cross-dressing and he would entertain ‘odd looking men’ in the rectory, where they engaged in sex acts.”
Staff reported his behavior to the Bridgeport Diocese. The Diocesan spokesman, Brian Wallace, confirmed some of this source’s information. Wallace told the Connecticut Post, “We became aware that he was acting out sexually — with men –in the church rectory.” Church officials then asked Wallin to resign.
Officially, Wallin, who was St. Augustine’s pastor, was officially granted a sabbatical in
July 2011 to seek a “health assessment”, but was suspended in May 2012 after failing to appear for a follow-up examination. Still, Wallin continued to receive a stipend from the Bridgeport Diocese up until his January 3rd, 2013 arrest for possession and distribution of methamphetamine.
Not surprisingly, the Bridgeport Diocese has remained defiant. Not only in the wake of countless lawsuits accusing them of pedophilia, but they have even stuck by Wallin even after he became the owner of a North Haven sex and smoke shop called “Land of Oz & Dorothy’s Place” shortly after leaving the priesthood.
The Statewide Narcotics Task Force apparently worked with the Department of Homeland Security’s “Fusion Center” in the nutmeg state- Connecticut Intelligence Center, or CTIC. We believe that CTIC participated, or had advance knowledge of the sting drug buy that was set up in the parking lot of Sandy Hook elementary school on the morning of December 14th, 2012.
We also believe that informants from the Latin Kings street drug gang worked with the Drug Enforcement Administration on the joint investigation that led to Wallin’s arrest. Wallin was later nicknamed “Monsignor Meth” by insiders in the Connecticut Police State apparatus. Wallin has also been compared to the fictional character Walter White on the HBO series, “Breaking Bad.”
Not surprisingly, after the bust, the Bridgeport Diocese asked for prayers for Msgr. Wallin, saying he has “difficult days ahead for him.”
Wallin, of Waterbury, Conn., plead guilty Tuesday, April 2, 2013, in federal court in Hartford, to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Wallin was scheduled to be sentenced June 25, 2013.
