Christian youth worker killed in Bradford a week before confirmation

by Heather Preston

A 24 year old youth worker and "deeply committed Christian" was fatally stabbed at her flat in Bradford.

Bori Benko, whose body was discovered in the Great Horton area on Sunday, was exploring the possibility of being ordained and was due to be confirmed at Bradford Cathedral on 28th November.

For the past three years Bori, who previously volunteered as a youth worker in the parish of Lexden, Colchester had been a "vital and energetic" member of the Bradford Cathedral community.

A spokesperson for the cathedral gave the following statement in response to her passing:

"Bori will be honoured and long remembered at the Cathedral for her enthusiastic, generous and infectious faith; her warmth and commitment to serve others. 

"Please pray for all those affected by her untimely death and in particular her parents, Krisztina and Ferenc and brother, Ferenc.

"Bori will be very sadly missed by all her family and friends both in Hungary and the wider community along with the staff and children at the school where she worked.

"May she be at peace with her Lord and Saviour and may her legacy live on in those she inspired."

A place of prayer has been set up at the cathedral in her memory.

A 21 year old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in police custody.
