Missionaries killed in Haiti are daughter, son-in-law of Missouri politician

MISSOURI – Missouri State Rep. Ben Baker says his daughter and son-in-law were both killed in Haiti in a gang attack.

“My heart is broken in a thousand pieces. I’ve never felt this kind of pain,” said Baker in a Facebook post Friday morning on the situation.

Baker (R-Neosho) says his daughter Natalie and his son-in-law Davy were attacked by gangs and killed. They were both full-time missionaries in Haiti.

Nonprofit Missions in Haiti Inc. called for an “urgent prayer” in a Facebook post on Thursday, reporting that Davy, Natalie, and some kids were coming out of a church when they were attacked.

According to the Associated Press, various attacks have followed since Haiti announced a new prime minister on April 30. Gangs in Haiti have laid siege to several neighborhoods, burning homes and exchanging gunfire.
