GALESBURG , Ill. — A pair of federal bankruptcy trustees and a private attorney grilled the leader of the Buchanan Abbey under oath Friday afternoon.

The creditors meeting in the Knox County Courthouse was designed to determine what assets Ryan St. Anne Scott and his failed venture in Illinois, the Holy Rosary Abbey, still have and where those items, real estate and bank accounts are.

More basic issues had to be answered first.

“Who are you? is the bigger question,” said Renee Hanrahan, a trustee involved in Scott’s separate personal bankruptcy case in Iowa.

Scott introduced himself at the hearing as Ryan Patrich Scott.
