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 a restaurant 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.
An 8-year-old, Martin Richard of Boston, also died. He was at the finish line watching the race with his family.
Medford, Mass., Mayor Michael McGlynn said he had confirmed the death with Campbell's father, William Campbell.
"Mr. Campbell said that she certainly was a dream daughter, the daughter that every father dreams to have and friends of hers said that she was eager about life. She Had a great sense of humor and freckles and red hair that brought her right to her Irish roots. She was someone who worked hard at everything she did," McGlynn said. "Another friend said she may have been a little loud at times but it was a loudness you loved."
