Two Catholic nuns found murdered in Mississippi home | Fox News

Two nuns who worked as nurses and helped the poor in rural Mississippi were found murdered in their home Thursday, and there were signs of a break-in and their vehicle was missing, according to officials.

The nuns were identified as Sister Margaret Held and Sister Paula Merrill, Holmes County Coroner Dexter Howard said.

It was too early to say how the nuns died, but it doesn't appear that they were shot, according to Durant Assistant Police Chief James Lee. Their bodies were taken to a state crime lab for autopsies.

The two women, both nurse practitioners, were found Thursday morning when they didn't report to work at a nearby hospital.

awful. Wonder if this guy was a patient of theirs? I'm sure the details they are not disclosing are far worse than we know. He will get his due justice behind bars.

How horribly sad for those wonderful women, their families, and that community. They and their loved ones are in my thoughts and prayers.
