Camp Counselors Slain

Clues sought in beach slaying of Christian missionary couple

Police are going door-to-door in the California coastal town of Jenner, seeking clues into the execution-style killings of a young Christian missionary couple. Jason Allen of Michigan and Lindsay Cutshall of Ohio were shot in the head less than a month before their wedding day as they lay in their sleeping bags on a wild shoreline. The Reverend Chris Cutshall, who had planned to officiate at his daughter's wedding, said he's nevertheless "grateful to God for taking our children home." The 26-year-old Allen and 23-year-old Cutshall met at Bible college and shared a passion for God and the wild outdoors. They'd been working together as counselors at a Christian adventure camp and dreamed of opening one of their own someday. A close friend of the Allen family in Michigan says, "They just wanted to find some mission where they could reach young people for the Lord."
