You probably remember Steve Theisen. We talked with him back in February about what he claims to have gone through as a fourth grader.

Today, he publicly named and asked for an investigation into Sister Mary Philip, who Theisen says abused him in the 1960's.

"Basically, you had a late 30's, early 40 year old nun with her tongue in a 9 year old boy repeatedly after school, on weekends," Theisen said.

While Theisen says his abuse happened in Eastern Iowa, Sister Mary Philip served two stints at the Visitation Parish in Stacyville, just east of Osage.

We spoke with that church's pastor Wednesday afternoon- He says until today, he'd never even heard of Mary Philip.
