SALT LAKE CITY -

An LDS missionary from Victor died Wednesday in Mexico.

A spokesperson from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said Elder Colt Daniel Kunz, 20, died after coming in contact with a live electrical wire. He was serving in the Mexico Tampico Mission and had been in the country for less than a month.

"In his short service, he had been described as the kind of missionary every mission president wants to receive," the church said Thursday. "Our thoughts and prayers are with Elder Kunz’s family, friends and others who mourn his passing."
