Arrangements are being made to bury slain American naturalist Dian Fossey in a cemetery she built for the mountain gorillas she studied in Rwanda, a U.S. official announced. Fossey, 53, was killed by blows from a machete last week at her mountain camp. Police have yet to make any arrests, but reports from Rwanda indicated that suspects have been identified. Helen Picard, information officer at the U.S. Embassy in Rwanda, said that Fossey’s parents, who live in Atherton, Calif., have given permission for the burial to take place in the Central African country.
