Father Gomez in 2005
|Father Peter Gomez|
|Portrayed by||Patrick Roman Miller|
Father Peter Gomez was a priest who counseled patients at the Hospital of Pennsylvania in 2005, including the elderly Sonny Carroll. The terminally ill Sonny, before making a last confession asked to speak to the police about a boxing match he'd refereed in 1976 in which boxer Jerry Stone was killed.
When Lieutenant John Stillman and Detective Lilly Rush arrived, Father Gomez explained what Sonny had told them.
