In Memory of Slain Peace Corps Benin Volunteer Kate Puzey

Some of you may have heard about the recent death of Peace Corps volunteer Kate Puzey who was serving in the Republic of Benin.

Originally from Georgia, Puzey was recently found dead outside her home under what seem to be suspicious circumstances. An investigation into the cause of her death is underway, and while there have been talks of murder, no one from Benin or the U.S. has confirmed it to be murder.

A wonderful piece has been written about Kate, her death’s impact on her community of service, as well as what the local villagers living in the vicinity of her site had to say about this tragic news. The post has generated several moving comments as well.

Sincere condolences go out to her family, friends and Peace Corps colleagues.
