The list of the names of the victims(updated)

The medical examiner is working very hard to identify all of the victims and he will not release the names until he is 100% sure that that is who they are. That is what is taking so long to get all the names. Also the medical examiner was given the wrong name to one of the people, the name that is wrong is still unknown. Here are some of the latest names to be released.

Austin Cloyd, 18

Austin Cloyd was an international studies student at Virginia Tech, who, according to her father, wanted to work for the United Nations one day, "in hopes of fostering peace in a troubled world." Cloyd, who was an active Methodist, started a program that sent mission trips from Illinois to Appalachia to rehab homes. The photo was taken on June, 4, 2006 by her family and it was released by the Blacksburg Baptist Church.

Having already received his undergraduate degree in civil engineering, Bluhm was getting ready to defend his thesis and had already accepted a job in Baltimore.

This photo was taken right before a Virginia Tech home football game in Blacksburgh, Virginia, in 2006.

Family members who flew out from Oklahoma, where McCain spent her early childhood years, described McCain as an avid reader and deeply religious. Additionally, McCain taught Sunday school and worked in a department store to save money before enrolling in college.
