Two Mormon Missionaries Killed in the Same Week

Benito Baeza

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A pair of Mormon missionaries died this week — bringing the total number of deaths of proselyting members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to 12 this year. This week’s deaths came on consecutive days. One occurred in in Mexico and the other in California. On Wednesday, 20-year-old Daniel Kunz of Victor, Idaho, was electrocuted while on mission on the gulf coast of Mexico in the city of Tampico. On Thursday, 18-year-old Andrew Edward Page of Charlotte, N.C., died when he was struck by a car while on his bike in California. Church officials say there are usually only a few deaths of missionaries each year, with the exception of 2003, where there were nine deaths, and 2008, when there were eight.
