Dark Magic Death

Bertha Jorkins, on holiday in Albania, is tortured and then murdered by Pettigrew and Voldemort

"Oh Bagman's likable enough, of course, but how he ever got to be Head of Department ... when I compare him to Mr. Crouch! I can't see Mr. Crouch losing a member of our department and not trying to find out what's happened to them. You realize Bertha Jorkins has been missing for over a month now? Went on holiday to Albania and never came back?"
-- Percy Weasley, August 1994 (GF5)

Bertha Jorkins, on holiday in Albania, is tortured and then murdered by Pettigrew and Voldemort
