The first U.S. commercial flight to Haiti in months made a grim round trip Thursday morning, returning with the bodies of a young American couple killed by a gang in Port-au-Prince last week, CNN revealed.

According to CNN, the remains of Davy and Natalie Lloyd were accompanied on the flight by the American ambassador to Haiti Dennis Hankins and American security agents, according to a source familiar with the operation. After flying from Haiti to Miami, they will be sent to their families.

“This morning, the remains of Davy and Natalie Lloyd departed safely on a flight back to the United States. There will be a series of stopovers and they will reach Neosho, Missouri, safely tomorrow afternoon” , we can read in a post on the Facebook page of Ben Baker, Natalie’s father, the representative of the State of Missouri.

“We praise the Lord for His protective hand in the face of this nightmare. The funeral will take place early next week, with more details to come tomorrow,” he also said.

According to American media reports, their return follows a week of extraordinary negotiations between the American government and Haitian authorities, local organizations and even gang leaders.

During a phone call with several gang leaders, Vitel’homme Innocent, a gang leader whose armed group Kraze Baryé was not involved in the attacks but controls an area around the American embassy, ​​claimed responsibility for the bodies of the two Americans, reports CNN.

“Following the call, I did everything in my power to communicate with the people controlling the area to gain access and recover their bodies,” Vitel’homme Innocent was quoted as saying by CNN.

Remember that the two American missionaries, Nathalie and Davy Lloyd, were killed on May 23, 2024, in Lison, Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti. The armed attack took place in an orphanage where they were carrying out their mission.
