One woman was killed in an unspecified type accident in Cambodia where she and her husband were missionaries. There was one 22-year-old who died from an unknown cause. Six—four females and two males, died in traffic fatalities with one six year old and one 22 year old in separate hit and runs and a Navy man serving in Norfolk.
