Father Jean Marie Vincent Assassination

The good work of the slain Father Jean Marie Vincent, assassinated by a flood of bullets in August of 1994, knows no bounds. As such, it was famously lamented by Claudette Werleigh, a colleague of Vincent's at the Catholic Relief Services, that not just one man had been killed by his murder. Father Vincent helped build Haiti by raising money and providing assistance for grass-roots groups. He aided farmers in finding overseas markets for their crops, did work with the poor and simply gave of himself plainly, often endangering his life for the rights of others.
