BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Finnish photojournalist who worked in Bethlehem during the second intifada was murdered on Thursday in the west coast of Finland, local media reported.

Police said Carina Appel, 45, was shot dead while chopping down trees on a plot of land in the village of Siipyy where she planned to build a home, the Finnish news site Helsingin Sanomat reported.

The suspected gunman was found dead around 40 meters away from her body, the report said. He was an 80-year-old neighbor who police believe may have killed Appel because he felt rejected by her.

Journalists at Ma'an who worked with Appel remember her as a hardworking and persistent news photographer.

"It was really heartbreaking to me when I heard she was killed just after she decided to settle down and leave behind all the hard days she witnessed as a photojournalist," a former colleague said.

I met Carina when she was an exchange student at North Bend High School in North Bend, OR. We were on the swim team together for the year she was there and we were friends. I just heard this news yesterday and am very sad to hear about it. I had kept in touch with Carina on and off throughout the years. She will be missed!

I met Carina in Israel we were neighbours for a while in Jerusalem, she was a great friend and helped me a lot. I had not seen or spoken to her for at least five years but she was a good friend to me i am in shock I cannot believe it what a complete and utter waste. She was a truly great person
