Second of three victims killed at Boston Marathon identified

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) -- A 29-year-old restaurant manager has been identified as one of three people killed in the bombing at the Boston Marathon.

Her father says Krystle Campbell, of Medford, Mass., had gone with her best friend to take a picture of the friend's boyfriend crossing the finish line on Monday afternoon.

William Campbell says his daughter, who worked at Jimmy's Steakhouse in nearby Arlington, was "very caring, very loving person, and was daddy's little girl." He says the loss has devastated the family.

He says the friend was seriously injured in the explosion. William told The New York Daily News that doctors initially confused his daughter's identity with the friend who survived. He says they went to visit who they thought was their daughter in her hospital room only to find it was her friend. A police detective later arrived to show the family a photo of Krystle.

An 8-year-old, Martin Richard of Boston, also died. He was at the finish line watching the race with his family.
