Vatican officials say that Cardinal Bernard Law, a former archbishop who became a symbol of the Catholic Church's sex abuse scandals, died on Wednesday at 86 years old.

As you may remember, he resigned amid a public uproar after The Boston Globe's Spotlight team exposed his involvement in the church's sexual abuse of children. The paper's efforts would be retold in the Oscar-winning film Spotlight.

Law had been living in Rome as his health was declining in recent years. And while the Vatican did not provide a cause of death, sources close to the recently hospitalized archbishop say he had been suffering from complications of diabetes, liver failure, and a buildup of fluids around the heart known as pericardial effusion.
