Electrical wire may have contributed to Hyde Park missionary’s fatal fall, church says

February 23, 2019 GMT

A statement released by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on its Dominican Republic website Thursday gave details on events leading to the Wednesday death of Hyde Park missionary Brennan Conrad.

Conrad’s companion said Conrad had gone to the roof with a bucket for water, according to the statement, which is in Spanish. Conrad then is believed to have come in contact with an electrical wire, which is believed to be the reason for his fall from the rooftop.

The United States Embassy is collaborating with the Church and local funeral services to arrange the transportation of Conrad to Utah.
