Lü Lingzi Dead — Friends Remember Their Lost Loved One
Lu Lingzi, who attended the marathon with her friend Zhou Danling, was currently pursuing a graduate degree at Boston University in Mathematics and Statistics.
Before Lu’s death was officially confirmed, her best friend Li Luquan, 23, told Mail Online, “Lingzi went to the marathon with three friends, one of whom was Zhou Danling and another girl who came home safe. Lingzi did not come home on Monday night and I called the police and notified the Chinese consulate. She’s my best friend, I miss her so much. We were roommates for two years at university in China. All her friends here miss her very much. Nobody knows where she is.”
