Body of Polish Mission Worker Slain in Bolivia Returned Home

LA PAZ – The body of Polish volunteer mission worker Helena Agnieszka Kmiec, 26, slain by thieves two weeks ago in the Bolivian city of Cochabamba, has been returned to her country of origin.

The attorney serving Agnieszka’s parents, Alvaro Martinez, told the media that the body is on a 22-hour flight to Poland through La Paz, Lima and Amsterdam.

The body will conveyed in “a special coffin that will allow it to remain perfectly preserved,” according to funeral home director Nicolas Andrade, who added that “there will be no problem continuing with the funeral arrangements made by the family in Europe,” who did not make the trip to Bolivia.

Agnieszka was murdered in the early hours of Jan. 24 in the town of Pacata near Cochabamba, where she was attacked and stabbed to death by two knife-wielding assailants, according to a report by the Attorney General’s Office.

The young woman suffered the fatal stab wounds when she tried to prevent a robbery of gas cylinders from the religious congregation where she was staying.

The young Pole was doing volunteer mission work with the Bolivia Lucyna Teresa Jdolowska religious congregation of the Edmundo Bojanouski School, where the crime was perpetrated.

She arrived in Bolivia last Jan. 9 to work as a volunteer for six months in the Cochabamba region.

Before coming to Bolivia, the volunteer had worked at missions in Romania, Hungary and Zambia, according to the Polish Consulate in La Paz.

The two suspected murderers, identified as Romualdo Manio dos Santos, 21, and Sergio Oscar Flores Rivero, 29, were given a preventive prison sentence last Jan. 26.
