Maria Monk
Canadian woman who claimed to have been a nun who had been sexually exploited in her convent.

Monk claimed that nuns of the Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph were forced to have sex with the priests in the seminary next door. The priests supposedly entered the convent through a secret tunnel. If the sexual union produced a baby, it was baptized and then strangled and dumped into a lime pit in the basement.
