Mississippi: Two nuns are stabbed to death

Friends have paid tribute to two Catholic nuns who were found slain at their Mississippi home, saying they would do ‘anything for anybody’.

Sisters Paula Merrill and Margaret Held were found by a police officer at their home on Castalian Springs Road in Durant when they did not report to work as normal on Thursday morning.

The women, both nurse practitioners, provided flu shots, insulin and other medical care for children and adults at the Lexington Medical Clinic.
