The family of Kip Lynch issued the following statement about the shootings Monday:
April 27, 2010
This will be the one and only statement from the Lynch family. We are still in shock and trying to figure out how to deal with this tragedy.
Kip proudly served his country in the army in Afghanistan and had just returned home. His family remembers him as a strong, spirited, good-humored and sweet young man. He loved his beautiful wife and daughter with all his heart. Words cannot express how much we will miss them.
We have attached two photographs of Kip, Kellie and their daughter Kyirsta. These will be the only photographs the family provides.
We appreciate the media respecting our privacy as we go through this very difficult time.
