*UPDATE: Yesterday during a news conference Boston Commissioner Edward Davis mentioned that one of the victims was a BU student. At the most recent press conference, it was announced that the third student is a BU grad student, but they "didn't have enough information" to notify the next of kin.
The press is now identifying two of the victims lost yesterday and one local station is adding the names to some of those injured we've seen in photos.
Krystle Campbell-from in this photo from WCVB's facbook page:
We have just learned Krystle Campbell, a 29-year-old Medford native, is one of the three victims killed in Monday's Boston Marathon bombings. She was a 2001 graduate of Medford High.
“She was so cute. She was just full of life,” Lillian said. “She loved being around people. She was a people lover, even as a little girl. She always had a lot of friends around her. She loved music, and she loved life, Krystle did. She was always bouncing and always happy.”And the youngest victim:
The father of Martin William Richard today said he is trying to both grieve the death of his 8-year-old son, who was killed at the Boston Marathon bombings, and help his wife and daughter recover from injuries they suffered during the terrorist attack on Monday.WCVB is has a photo gallery - as they find the names and stories of the victims seen in photos - they are connecting the stories and the photos, "Remembering the victims: http://on.wcvb.com/..."
“My dear son Martin has died from injuries sustained in the attack on Boston. My wife and daughter are both recovering from serious injuries,’’ Bill Richard said in a statement released this afternoon. “We thank our family and friends, those we know and those we have never met, for their thoughts and prayers. I ask that you continue to pray for my family as we remember Martin.’’
Once again, the Boston Globe and local Boston news stations, wcvb, whdh, wbz-tv are the best resources.
