Wife of London Terror victim speaks out
BOSTON (WHDH)--Still in shock, family members search for healing as the British government searches for more answers into the London terror attack and death of British soldier, Lee Rigby.
“I just wanted to say I loved Lee, I always will,” said Lee’s wife. “He was a devoted father to our son Jack, and we’ll both miss him terribly.”
The British soldier and father of a two year old was killed in broad daylight. He was near his barracks when he was run down by a car Wednesday before being attacked with a meat cleaver and knives.
One of the two suspects telling shocked bystanders they were acting out of revenge for British wars in Muslim countries.
"Rest in peace Lee. We loved you so much and you didn't deserve this. You fought for your country and did it well. You will always be our hero, we are just upset you left us so early," said Ian Rigby, Lee’s stepfather.
The two British suspects of Nigerian descent are still under armed guard in a hospital after being shot by the police. Questions are now being asked about whether the attack could have been prevented.
The men were known to Britain's intelligence officials but a government minister said it's impossible to control "everyone all of the time."
Experts said these new kinds of attacks are very difficult to track and detect. They are small in scale with relatively little organization unlike previous attacks we’ve seen.
