Missouri State Rep. Ben Baker’s daughter and son-in-law murdered by gangs in Haiti.

Tragic news has hit the family of Missouri State Representative Ben Baker. His daughter, Natalie Lloyd, his son-in-law, Davy Lloyd, as well as another missionary named Jude Lloyd, were murdered in a violent gang attack in Haiti, as Missions In Haiti reported on its Facebook page and confirmed by the Koamnewswow site. However, the exact details of where the attack took place have not been clarified.

Ben Baker shared the painful news, saying: “Davy and Natalie Lloyd were attacked by gangs this evening and were both killed. » The Lloyd family, on a mission in Haiti, was ambushed while returning from church with their children. According to details provided by Baker, three truckloads of gang members targeted them, leading to a night of horror.

Davy Lloyd was beaten and forcibly taken from his home by the attackers, who then looted their belongings before leaving. Another gang later intervened, claiming to want to help, but the situation quickly escalated into a violent confrontation. The shots rang out, endangering the lives of Davy, Natalie, and Jude Lloyd, who were taking refuge in their house.

Despite desperate attempts at negotiation and relief, including seeking a safe evacuation, efforts to save the family failed. The last communication indicated that Davy, Natalie, and Jude were killed around 9 p.m. This tragedy has plunged their loved ones into deep pain and uncertainty.

Ben Baker issued an urgent call for prayer, saying the situation was desperate and any possible help was being sought to try to save the family. He also mentioned the difficulties in maintaining contact with local authorities and obtaining immediate assistance.

The horrific circumstances of the incident highlight growing violence in Haiti, where armed gangs are spreading terror among locals and foreign visitors. At the moment, it is unknown who is responsible for the deaths of these foreign citizens.

It is important to remember that the US State Department had announced a reward of up to $2,000,000 for information leading to the arrest and/or conviction of Vitel’Homme Innocent. He is accused of killing one of the 20 missionaries taken hostage by his gang in 2022. “Our determination to hold him accountable for his alleged crimes remains unwavering,” the US State Department said in a statement.

Recently, this same Vitel’Homme Innocent gave an interview to CNN, an American media outlet.
