The third person killed in the Boston Marathon attack was a grad student from China studying at Boston University, the school says at BU Today. The university isn't releasing her name until it gets her family's permission. (China's consulate confirms that one of its citizens was killed, reports CNN.) She was with two other BU students watching the race near the finish line—one escaped injury and the other is recuperating after a pair of surgeries. The other two fatalities have been identified as Krystle Campbell, 29, and Martin Richard, 8. (More Boston Marathon stories.)
