Bloody Christmas

Murder Shocks Palau, Church Community
News reached Guam yesterday of a brutal murder in Palau earlier in the week. A triple murder; husband, wife and their 11 year old son were bludgeoned to death in their home Monday night. The fourth family member, a 10 year old girl, was abducted from the home, raped, strangled, and left for dead on the side of a road. A suspect was arrested soon after, and readily confessed to the crime. The husband was a pastor with the SDA church, and the entire family were missionaries in Palau. A shocking, senseless crime committed because of drugs. The suspect admitted smoking “ice” before he went to rob the house on Monday night.

Navy SEALS shot in drive-by
Two Navy SEALS remained hospitalized on today after being shot in a drive-by shooting on Christmas morning. The two men were in a taxi when a car pulled alongside the cab and opened fire. Apparently the SEALS were involved in an altercation with the two shooters in Tumon. Police arrested both suspects late Thursday night.
