Two nuns found murdered in Mississippi home

Two Catholic nuns have been found dead in their home after they didn’t show up for their work. The pair worked as nurse practitioners out of state.

Police are investigating the deaths of two Catholic nuns after they missed work. The pair were found together in a Mississippi home where they lived. Both worked as nurse practitioners at different locations.

Sister Paula Merrill was previously a nurse with the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in Kentucky. Sister Margaret Held was a nurse with the Sisters of St. Francis School in Milwaukee.

Police say the par were killed in an apparent homicide. They do not believe a gun was involved; the pair were killed by other means.

There is no apparent motive.

We must pray for the repose of our sisters and that justice is served
