“There are still too many questions for which there are no easy answers, and we are filled with anger, bitterness, pain and tears,” Bishop Eugene Taylor Sutton wrote in a pastoral letter released Tuesday.

Sutton, the leader of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland, used the letter to reflect on the alleged Dec. 27 hit-and-run crash that killed cyclist Thomas Palermo on Roland Ave. He addresses the circumstances surrounding Heather Cook, the diocese’s Bishop Suffragan, who is currently in jail on charges of vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene, as well as being drunk and texting while driving.
