All 14 victims killed in the San Bernardino massacre have now been identified by the coroner after completing their investigation Thursday at the Inland Regional Center.
Among the dead were a mother-of-three who had fled Islamic extremism in Iran as a teenager, a 26-year-old mother with a young son, and the 60-year-old cousin of New York Giants player Nat Berhe.
‘This shooting has caused each victim’s family, friends and co-workers, along with the first responders, to suffer an enormous personal tragedy,’ Sheriff John McMahon said.
