Masons & Murder Case...

Apart from the acknowledging fact that Freemasonry is incompatible with Catholicism, I'm never quite sure what to make of the Masons - they certainly seem to engage in their fair share of cronyism, but beyond that I'm an agonstic. In Italy, in particular, it seems to be the custom amongst Conservative and Traditionalist Catholics to blame everything from jewel thiefts to falling Mass attendences on the Masons - however, given that good old-fashioned apathy, incompetence and soical factors offer normally offer just as good an excuse, I'm inclined to take the more extravagent claims with a grain of salt.
It's interesting, however, to note the following in a Telegraph article about a recently solved murder:
Park was arrested on his return. The inquiry was hampered by the fact that the 1976 file had gone missing. It is thought to be more than coincidental that Park and a senior police commander, now dead, were freemasons.
