Autopsies on the bodies of the two American missionaries who were murdered in St Mary last weekend revealed that Randy Hentzel died of a gunshot wound and Harold Nichols of chop and gunshot wounds.

The Government's forensic pathologist did autopsies on the bodies of the two American missionaries yesterday. Their bodies were found in Albion Mountain, northwest St Mary, 24 hours apart.

Detectives yesterday attended a case conference at the Criminal Investigation Branch headquarters on Duke Street in Kingston to assess all the evidence collected so far in the investigations.

The Jamaican police said they would continue to be in touch with US Embassy officials and share the outcomes of the case conference as well as to discuss the possibility of partnering with American investigators.

One of the missionaries, Randy Hentzel, came to know Christ in our church and attended here for a while before joining an area church plant and being sent out by them (First Family Church in Ankeny, IA).

His funeral service will be here at Grace Church Monday night, 6:30pm.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
