Young Missionary Dies in the Dominican Republic

Salt Lake City | Saturday, 28 March 2020 |

Three missionaries serving in the Dominican Republic Santiago Mission were involved in a car accident this afternoon. Tragically, Elder Israel Emmanuel Ramírez Díaz, age 20, from Ecatepec, Mexico, passed away in that accident. He had been serving since April 2018. Two other missionaries with Elder Ramirez at the time — Elder Jonata Maia Oliveira, age 20, from Fortaleza, Brazil, and Elder Brigham Darian Tovar Noriz, age 20, from Atotonilco de Tula, Hidalgo, Mexico, were both injured and are receiving medical attention. We are working with local authorities as they investigate the crash.
