Ilta-Sanomat, Friday 18 August 2017
There are two people dead at the Turku Market Square stapling.
The police have reported that two people died in Turku's Friday stabbing. According to IS's data, one of the victims was Jehovah's Witness woman, who was in the market sharing brochures.
- It is true, confirms the information of IS Veikko Leinonen, a spokeswoman for Jehovah's Witnesses.
Police have not formally commented on fatalities or injured genders. The suspect was caught in the police by police shot at her feet. The police have told the suspect that he is a foreign-born, young man who is in hospital.
According to Jehovah's Witness Leinonen, the community has already offered crisis support for the deceased woman's family. According to Leinonen, the deceased woman was a well-respected and valued person among the witnesses. He had no children.
According to Leinonen, a deceased woman lived in Turku but was not Turks native.
- In our view, it was not a blow to our religion, but his involvement in the victim was purely random.
Leinonen reminds us that Jehovah's Witnesses are in so-called gospel work around the world in abundance of people gathering places, such as squares and squares.
- We are there to smile and offer biblical literature to people and nothing has happened in the past. This seems to be quite a sad random event.
According to Leinonen, Jehovah's Witnesses throughout Finland and the world have shown their condolences to the deceased and close friends of the woman.
- Our community is very close.
