The eight-year-old boy killed in Monday’s bomb blasts at the Boston Marathon has been identified as Martin Richard of Dorchester, Mass.
Richard’s mother, Denise, and his six-year-old sister were reported to have been seriously injured in the explosion that killed three and wounded 144. A third child was reportedly uninjured.
Friends of the family gathered at Tavolo Restaurant on Monday night in Dorchester, where the boy’s father William Richard is a community leader. Denise Richard worked at the local Neighborhood House Charter School, The Associated Press reported.
“They are beloved by this community. They contribute in many ways. That’s why you see this outpouring,” City Councilor at Large Ayanna Pressley told the Boston Globe. “It’s surreal, it’s tragic, it’s incomprehensible. Everyone here tonight is trying to comfort one another and be prayerful.”
The boy loved to clamber up trees in the neighborhood and play outside his home, neighbor Betty Delorey told the AP.
On the stoop of the family’s home, a single candle burned on Tuesday. One word was written in chalk on the front walk: “Peace.”

The band is still describing his involvement as “in discussion,” but according to guitarist Joe Walsh, the Eagles will be joined by former member Bernie Leadon, who was in the band from 1971-1975,
on their upcoming tour.
This isn’t the first time an Eagle has raised the possibility of a special guest from the past popping up on the History of the Eagles Tour, but Walsh’s recent interview with Billboard marked the first time anyone’s come right out and named names.
“Bernie’s brilliant,” Walsh explained. “I never really got a chance to play with him, but we’ve been in contact. We see him from time to time, and I’m really glad he’s coming because it’s going to take the show up a notch, and I’m really looking forward to playing with him, finally.”
Walsh is also working on a blues album.
