The Medford, Massachusetts resident  is also identified as the second victim of the explosions that rocked the finish line of the Boston Marathon in Copley Square.

Krystle, 29,  brought along a friend to take a picture of her friend’s boyfriend crossing the finish line; the friend was seriously injured in the blast.

Her parents at first thought she had survived the explosion. However, Kystle and her friend’s names got mixed up on the way to the hospital.

Krystle’s grandmother Lillian Campbell says her son was “devastated” when he found out the truth and almost passed out.

Her mother told WCVB TV Krystle was a “beautiful young being. She loved pets. She loved people.”


“My daughter was the most lovable girl. She helped everybody and I’m just so shocked right now. We’re just devastated,” her father William A. Campbell told Yahoo! News.  “She was a wonderful, wonderful girl. Always willing to lend a hand.” He also called her a “daddy’s little girl.”

Krystle held down two jobs:  manager of a restaurant in nearby Arlington, Massachusetts and also worked for Hordon Health in Boston. On their Facebook page, Hordon remembered a woman they described as “beautiful, loud” and having a “million dollar smile.”

Krystle you will be missed not only by those who knew you, loved you, and cherished you the most, but you will be deeply missed by this world as a whole. Your character, your fortitude, your conviction is something that this world desperately needs and now will forever miss,” wrote the gym.
