About the woman who was killed - from a pastor of a church in Jerusalem named Charles Kopp:

The 60 year old woman who was killed was Mary Gardiner from the Home for Bible Translators. Mary was from Scotland who spent the past 18 years working alone with a tribe in Togo translating the scriptures into their language. She came to Jerusalem specifically for language studies and draw on the richness of the Hebrew scriptures for her translation work. She so enjoyed being in Israel and relished the company of the other students from all over the world. The translators often attend our congregation on Saturday mornings when they are in town and it is not unusual for Chuck to have them say where they are from and what translation they are working on. She especially stuck out to us as our son-in-law Josh grew up in Togo. Mary was, in fact, on her way to spend the night with an old school friend who was in town on a tour. The friend finally called the Ronnings to let them know she never arrived. The Ronnings spent the morning at the police station and then the morgue to identify Mary's body. We met up later at the Home for Bible Translators to offer them and the students our condolences
