Missionary murdered in Kenya

An Italian missionary murdered near Nairobi is believed to be the victim of a former seminarian.

A suspect has been identified in the investigation of the murder of father Giuseppe Bertaina, an Italian missionary who was killed January 16 in his office at the Institute of Philosophy of the Missionaries of the Consolata in Langata, western suburb of Nairobi.

Well informed sources have told MISNA that the young man who discovered the corpse of father Bertaina believes to have recognized one of the alleged murderers, a former fellow seminarian. “The young man was heading to visit father Bertaina to withdraw some documents. Before knocking, he noticed that there were other people in the missionary’s office and so he waited. Shortly after, two men and a woman emerged from the room. He waved goodbye to one, a former classmate who had been kicked out of the school. Entering the room, he then found the lifeless body of father Bertaina, launching an alarm”.

The sources also said that while the two men managed to get away from the area, the security guards managed to stop the woman, handing her to police. The police said that the woman was found having some checkbooks belonging to father Bertaina.
