A second victim in the Boston Marathon bombings has been identified: Krystle M. Campbell, a 29-year-old originally from Medford, Mass.
Her father, William A. Campbell Jr., told Yahoo News he's in shock that his daughter was killed.
"My daughter was the most lovable girl. She helped everybody, and I'm just so shocked right now. We're just devastated," he said. "She was a wonderful, wonderful girl. Always willing to lend a hand."

>> Karen Rand survived, but was in surgery for her serious injuries through Monday night. Cheryl Rand Engelhardt, Karen Rand's relative, wrote on Facebook that Krystle's parents at first believed that Karen was their daughter, and that she had survived the attack, because Karen was carrying Krystle's ID. Krystle's family was finally ushered into Karen's hospital room after one of her leg surgeries by hospital staff, only to discover their daughter's friend instead of Krystle. Krystle was then declared missing, and the family found out on Tuesday she was among the dead.
We are sending money to those who cheered for her murder - at the discretion of the White House. I'd like to hear Obama explain why that is a good idea.
OMG. Good news can quickly turn. Horrible.
Yes and actually it may have been one of Krystle’s parents who said they heard their daughter was OK, but apparently at 2 am they were brought into the hospital to see their daughter but they saw it was actually her friend, who was carrying her ID. Their daughter...was instead fatal victim #2...
This is sad.
The other identified victim, 8-year-old Martin Richard, was running from the first explosion with his family when the second blast killed him. His mother and 6-year-old sister were injured in the bombing as well.

sent prayers to all of the victim’s family. Lets Tell these F’ing TERRORISTS that we won’t be afraid!!
Yes, very. I believe a picture of this woman just after the explosion is on liveleak.
RIP Krystal and prayers for your family.
