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
