BU Student Remembered As ‘Bright, Intelligent, Beautiful’

Lu Lingzi, third victim of Boston Marathon bombing

Lingzi Lu’s family remembers her as the “joy of [their] lives,” an ambitious young woman, full of dreams and hopes and love for her friends and family.

An outpouring of comments on various articles remembers her as an “amazing girl,” with a “beautiful smile.”

All that spirit, all that life, was cut tragically short Monday, April 15, when Lu, 23, was killed in the bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, a terrorist act that also claimed the lives of 8-year-old Martin Richard of Dorchester, and 29-year-old Krystle ­Campbell, of Medford. 

In an open letter, Lu’s family said Lu “was a bright and wonderful child.”

“We were thrilled to watch her grow into an intelligent and beautiful young woman,” the letter reads. “She was a positive role model for many others.”

It was her dream to study in the United States, according to the letter. She was realizing that dream as a graduate student at Boston University where she was studying statistics, according to her LinkedIn profile. read more

Bombing Victim Lu Lingzi Remembered Back Home

A Chinese newspaper has identified the third Boston Marathon bombing victim as Lu Lingzu, a Boston University graduate student, according to the Associated Press. Lu, from Shenyang, China, was studying statistics in Boston. A second Chinese national and BU student, Zhou Danling, was also injured in the blasts. She is listed in stable condition in a Boston hospital, according to Chinese officials.

Lu’s death has led to an outpouring from friends, family and concerned neighbors in China. Lu’s Sina Weibo page already has 20,000 comments from shocked and upset friends (Sina Weibo is a Chinese social media service that combines Twitter- and Facebook-like features). 

A former neighbor in China was elegiac when talking about Lu on his Sina Weibo page.

“I saw her grow up, and a few scenes from the past are flashing through my mind. Now, she’s becoming a girl, a bit Westernized, but a loud bang has changed everything,” wrote Zhang Xinbo. “I think of her loved ones, and I don’t know how they are coping with this painful news, while still searching for any thread of hope.”  read more
