3rd Victim of Boston Bombing

Police say they know the identity of the 3rd victim of the blast but are refusing to release it, saying it would be inappropriate. Can anyone shed some insight into why? The only thing I can think of is that it may be someone prominent and they don't want that death to overshadow the other two. It's really strange.

It's a Chinese National

The Chinese Consulate in New York says a Chinese national is the third person killed in the Boston marathon blasts.

An official at the consulate's press section, who was not authorized to give his name, said that one Chinese student was injured and another died in the blast.

The official said a work group from the consulate was in Boston to investigate the situation and assist relatives of the victims.

The official Chinese news agency Xinhua reported that relatives have requested that the deceased not be identified.

Possibly haven't gotten in touch with the family yet. Lots of reasons we could guess at.

The most brutally inappropriate joke just popped into my head.

Based on my wiki detective work that guy is not the 3rd fatality.

Hopefully he makes it.
