Archbishop: Reopen investigation into Father Kaiser’s murder

Catholic World News - August 24, 2010

Ten years after the murder of Father John Kaiser, the Church in Kenya is calling upon authorities to reopen their investigation into the American missionary’s murder.

“As we converge here today to mark the tenth anniversary of the late Father Kaiser, we pray hard that one day, the truth will be told as to who killed our beloved brother,” said Archbishop Zacchaeus Okoth of Kisumu.

“On behalf of those who continue to seek justice for Father Kaiser, I call upon the government of Kenya to do all in its power to find, try, and punish those responsible for Father Kaiser’s murder,” added Father Liam Cummins, superior general of the Mill Hill Missionaries, of which Father Kaiser was a member. “To this end, I strongly urge the government of the United States of America to ensure that the FBI cooperate fully in these new investigations.”
