UPDATED WITH OBITUARY, FUNERAL SERVICE: Suspect in murders of Goshen's Michael Sharp, two others arrested - Goshen News

Monday, May 01, 2017

Zaida Catalan and interpreter Betu Tshintela were found late last month in a shallow grave in Congo’s Central Kasai province. Sharp was a former Goshen and Middlebury resident who graduated from Bethany Christian High School in 2001 and graduated Eastern Mennonite University in 2005.The U.N. investigators had been looking into alleged human rights violations by the Congolese army and local militia groups. Three other local members of their team remain missing.Their deaths raised an outcry, with Sweden opening a murder investigation and Congo’s President Joseph Kabila vowing punishment for those responsible.It was the first recorded disappearance of international workers in the once-calm Kasai provinces, where at least 400 civilians have been killed since August amid a rebellion loyal to former traditional leader Kamwina Nsapu. The United Nations has said 23 mass graves have been found in the region, and at least 434,000 people have been displaced.“Anyone who has information in connection with the serious acts committed in the greater Kasai is asked to come forward with it,” said Ponde, adding that everything is being done to protect those who might be in danger.The prosecutor of the International Criminal court has said the killing of the U.N. investigators and other violence in Congo could be crimes under her court’s jurisdiction.Memorial serviceA memorial service for Sharp is scheduled Saturday at 4 p.m. Central Time at Hesston Mennonite Church in Hesston, Kansas.
