Irene Garza was a 26-year-old school teacher who went to church on Easter weekend 1960.

John Feit, a 27-year-old priest, and Irene reportedly crossed paths at the time during confession at McAllen’s Sacred Heart Church in 1960. That was the last place she was seen alive.

Decades later, investigators made an arrest in the case.

John Feit was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Irene Garza in Dec. 2017.
