Father K. J. Thomas: rector of seminary in Bangalore, beaten to Death

The rector of a Catholic seminary in India was murdered on Easter Monday by an unknown assailant.

Father K. J. Thomas, rector of a seminary in Bangalore, was apparently killed around dawn. Police say that he was beaten with a brick, so viciously that colleagues had difficulty recognizing his corpse. Archbishop Bernard Moras of Bangalore described the killing at "brutal, terrible and senseless."

Police have not yet been able to identify a suspect or a motive for the killing.
