Death of John Chau

The murder of an American missionary John Allen Chau broke the news headlines. He went to visit an isolated Sentinelese tribe of the North Sentinel area in Andaman island and the Nicobar Islands in India, where he was killed by their members. He was reportedly shot and killed with bow and arrows and buried on the beach. The director-general of police of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands have confirmed that they have located the site where the American missionary was buried after being killed. The Sentinelese tribe has managed to keep themselves isolated from the modern world over thousands of years. Earlier, Indian police had arrested several fishermen who helped John Chau to reach the Island, risking all of their lives. He accepted the risk and went there to spread Christianity to the Sentinelese tribes. Those fishermen who took John Chau there reportedly saw the Sentinelese dragging his body and burying it on the beach. The officials took a few of the arrested people close to the Island in order to study the route and circumstances around the Islands. Thus, Indian authorities are yet to figure out the way to recover the body of Allen Chau.

His family is mourning the loss. They wrote to the world, "We recently learned from an unconfirmed report that John Allen Chau was reported killed in India while reaching out to members of the Sentinelese Tribe in Andaman Islands Worlds cannot express the sadness we have experienced about this report. He was a beloved son, brother, uncle, and best friend to us. To others, he was a Christian missionary, a wilderness EMT, an international soccer coach, and a mountaineer. He loved God-life, helping those in need, and had nothing but love for the Sentinelese people. We forgive those reportedly responsible for his death. We also ask for the release of those friends he had in the Andaman Islands He ventured out on his own free will and his local contacts need not be persecuted for his own actions. As a family, we ask for your understanding and respect for him and us during this time.".
