One of the things she enjoyed:

I love the Charles River at night!

Lu was originally from China’s northeastern city of Shenyang. Friends and family were worried when on Monday Lingzi never returned home.

The University of Boston confirmed the third victim was a student of the center but they didn’t want to give any names since they didn’t have the family’s consent.

The third victim was one of three friends at Boston University who “watched the race near the finish line”, the university said.

Among the three friends was Zhou Danling, another Chinese graduate student at Boston University, who was injured and is now in stable condition at Boston Medical Center. Zhou was previously reported to be in a coma, according to news reports. The third friend was unharmed.

A Chinese Consulate General official from the Chinese Consulate in New York reported Chinese national Lu Lingzi was missing in the wake of Monday’s bombings that killed three and wounded more than 170 people.

Those who knew her have been sharing the love on what is believed to be Lu’s micro blogging account hosted by Sina Weibo, which was last updated Monday with a breakfast photo. By early Wednesday afternoon, more than 14,000 comments were left on the page.

Friends have been contacted to know further information about Lu but they’ve said they want to respect Lu’s family whishes. Which is something completely understandable, after loosing a daughter no parent in thinking on giving comments.
