US-based church group says Haitian authorities found boy kidnapped during missionary’s slaying

A U.S.-based church group says Haitian authorities found a 4-year-old boy who was kidnapped during the killing of a missionary last month and two suspects are in custody.

Jonathan “JoJo” Paul was snatched by gunmen after they fatally shot long-time Haiti-based missionary Roberta Edwards in a late night attack near the foster care home and food distribution site she ran on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince. Two teenagers escaped after the 55-year-old Edwards told them to run for their lives

Paul’s recovery was reported by the Tennessee-based Estes Church of Christ on its Facebook page late Firday.

Church officials have said Edwards was aware of the dangers of working in Haiti and considered leaving recently but stayed on because of her devotion for the foster children at the Sonlight Children’s Home.
