FBI is set to exhume body of murder victim Joyce Malecki whose case was ... trends now

The FBI will exhume the body of a young murder victim who was killed 54 years ago - after her case was profiled in Netflix docuseries 'The Keepers.'

Joyce Helen Malecki, 20, disappeared on November 11, 1969. Her body was found two days later in a body of water at the soldier park training area at Fort Meade. She had been stabbed in the throat and strangled to death. 

Now, her surviving brother Darryl has been informed by FBI that they have scheduled Malecki's exhumation for December 14. 

Malecki's remains will be exhumed from Loudon Park Cemetery in Baltimore after more than five decades.

The FBI are set to explore an unspecified lead possibly connecting the two cases, Kurt Wolfgang, an attorney and executive director of Maryland Crime Victims' Resource Center previously told DailyMail.com.

Rev. A. Joseph Maskell was never criminally charged and denied all the allegations. In 1994, he was removed from his priestly ministry in Baltimore. He died in May 2001

Though he said the FBI gave them limited information, he said in January 1970 during Malecki's autopsy, a hair was discovered on her body that wasn't hers, and he believes that is what the investigators will be looking at. 

Around the same time as Malecki's death, Catherine Ann Cesnik, 27, a nun and Catholic high school teacher in Baltimore, was reported missing on November 7, 1969. 

Her body was discovered on January 3, 1970, nearly two months after she went missing. She had been choked and had a fatal head wound.

Cesnik's unsolved murder became the subject of the true-crime documentary after a former student Jean Hargadon Wehner went to her teacher, Sister Cesniak to share that she was being sexually abused by the high school chaplain. 

When the chaplain discovered that Wehner had said something, he took her to Cesnik's dead body and threatened it would be her if she didn't keep quiet.

Wolfgang, who represents Wehner and a number of other sex abuse survivors of the Archbishop Keough High School abuse, said his client never went to the authorities - terrified that she and her family would be murdered.

'She was petrified with fear,' Wolfgang said.
