Any news on name of deceased? I know it was being withheld until the family was notified. Very, very sad news. Condolences to the family at this very difficult time. :(

Thank you for the question. We are still waiting on authorities to release the victim's identity to the public. Last we heard, before the holiday break, was that they were still working to locate/notify next of kin -- which must be completed before they confirm his name publicly.
