The identity of a second victim of the Boston terror attack was revealed Tuesday. Krystle Campbell, an employee of Jimmy's Steer House in Arlington Heights, died in the bombings, Medford Mayor Michael McGlynn said. Campbell, 29, recently left her position as general manager of Summer Shack restaurant's now-shuttered Hingham location, and her former employer paid tribute to her in a Facebook post, which read in part:
"She was a fun, outgoing person," said her grandmother Lillian Campbell, told CNN. "She was always there to help somebody. And she was just beautiful."
“We are heartbroken at death of our daughter Krystle Marie. She was a wonderful person and everybody that knew her loved her," Krystle's mother Patty Campbell told CNN.
"She loved her dogs. She had a heart of gold, she was always smiling from, you couldn't ask for a better daughter. I can't believe this happened. She was such a hard worker in everything she did. This doesn’t make any sense.
According to a report by the Boston Globe, Campbell attended the race with a friend who is still hospitalized with severe injuries.
Boston's Forum restaurant on Boylston Street was at the epicenter of the tragedy, with the second of two bombs exploding on their patio. Several guests and staff members were injured in the blast, and the restaurant sustained extensive damage.
A post by the owners on the restaurant's Facebook page said:
The restaurant is located very close to the marathon's finish line and had been touted as an ideal place to cheer on runners at the finish line.
Food blog Eater.com has compiled an ongoing list of restaurants temporarily shuttered by the damage and ongoing investigation.
