Polish Roman Catholic priest, Father Jerzy Popiełuszko dared to allign himself with the Solidarity movement in Communist-ruled Poland.
As a result, he became a target of the Socialists and their theophobic ideology of death and destruction.
The Communist secret police plotted to kill him in a staged car accident, on October 13, 1984, but he avoided it; however, another plan was successful.
Three secret policemen pretended to have car problems, on October 19, 1984, flagged down the priest and grabbed him when he stopped.
Captain Grzegorz Piotrowski, Leszek Pękala and Waldemar Chmielewski beat the priest, tied him up, tossed him into the trunk and then attached a stone to his feet before they pushed him into the Vistula Water Reservoir.
His body was recovered on October 30, 1984.
