PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) -- Members of a church in Haiti are urging police to find the person who killed an American missionary in his home in Port-au-Prince this week.
Police say George Knoop was fatally stabbed Tuesday afternoon in his home in the Delmas section of Haiti's capital. The 70-year-old missionary was apparently alone at the time and knew his assailant.
Knoop, who hails from Chicago, came to Haiti for the first time in 2010 in the aftermath of the earthquake. He became an elder with the Quisqueya Chapel and a worked as a volunteer for U.S.-based Missionary Flights International.
John Munsell of the Quisqueya Chapel said Knoop also mentored young men. He added that he hoped police caught his killer.
The church has planned a memorial service on Wednesday afternoon.
