“It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of a young missionary serving in the Dominican Republic Santo Domingo East Mission,” said Church spokesman Daniel Woodruff.

Elder Brennan Conrad, an 18-year-old missionary from Utah serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, passed away Wednesday morning after falling from the roof of his apartment building.

Elder Conrad had been serving since August 2018.

“Our deepest condolences go out to his family,” said Woodruff. “We pray they will be comforted as they deal with this tragedy and mourn Elder Conrad’s passing.”
