A strange investigation is underway in Rome after a church was robbed Saturday. What did the thieves take? A relic containing a vial of blood from Pope John Paul II.
"The relic was at the church in the Abruzzo section in Italy, where the pope loved to go skiing. Dozens of police officers are on the case. They're using dogs to try to pick up a scent." (Via WNBC)
According to NBC, police believe the theft was probably commissioned because the only thing stolen was the one relic, with several other valuables left behind.
