*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.
Krystle Campbell now identified as the second victim.
The Boston Globe published a story after interviewing Krystle's grandmother, Lillian Campbell, who described her beloved grandaughter:
“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:
Martin Richards 8 yrs-old
From the Boston Globe:
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.

“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.’’

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/..."

Once again, the Boston Globe and local Boston news stations, wcvb, whdh, wbz-tv are the best resources.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
