High-ranking priest caught in cocaine-fueled gay orgy in Vatican apartment

A high-ranking Vatican monsignor who is a secretary to one of Pope Francis’ closest collaborators was arrested by Vatican police after they caught him hosting a cocaine-fueled homosexual orgy in a building right next to St. Peter’s Basilica. 

Monsignor Luigi Capozzi, 49, was caught by Vatican gendarmerie in a raid some two months ago that took place in the former Palace of the Holy Office. 

While the top Vatican officials have been mute about the raid, Italian media broke the story last week after receiving inside information. 

Vatican police allegedly caught the monsignor, whom Italian media called an "ardent supporter of Pope Francis," after tenants in the building complained repeatedly about constant comings and goings of visitors to the building during all hours of the night. The building is currently being used by various high-ranking churchmen, including prefects, presidents, and secretaries to the Roman Curia. 

Capozzi, who on his LinkedIn page calls himself an "expert in canon law and dogmatic theology," managed to evade suspicion from Italian police by using a BMW luxury car with license plates of the Holy See, which made him practically immune to stops and searches. This privilege, usually reserved for high-ranking prelates, allowed the monsignor to transport cocaine for his frequent homosexual orgies without being stopped by the Italian police.
