Plans are in place to transport the bodies of two missionaries back to the U.S. who were murdered in Haiti, but it’s unknown when it might happen.

Davy and Natalie Lloyd were fatally shot last Thursday night by an armed gang that attacked the church where they worked, and a third missionary, Jude Montis, who was a Haitian citizen, was also killed. Natalie was the daughter of State Rep. Ben Baker, R-Neosho.

U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Missouri, is asking the Biden Administration to “take all available steps to ensure that adequate security measures are in place” to return Davy and Natalie’s bodies to the U.S. In the letter, he points out that heavily-armed gangs could possibly delay or hijack their bodies and hold them for ransom, and that “sufficient security personnel” are needed.

Meanwhile, a GoFundMe page has raised more than $50,000 so far to pay for bringing them home and for funeral expenses.

Natalie and Davy Lloyd worked for the ministry Missions in Haiti, which is based in Claremore, Oklahoma. Davy’s parents, David and Alicia Lloyd, founded the ministry in 2000.
