Lee Rigby, 25, a military recruiter in London, was killed in London's Woolrich area on Wednesday, May 22. Rigby played in the military's Corps of Drums and was a veteran of the conflict in Afghanistan, having served as a machine gunner. The father of a 2-year-old boy, he was described as "always smiling."
The attack on Rigby is presumed to have been because he was a veteran, motivated by ongoing tensions regarding the conflict in Afghanistan. Two suspects are in custody after an on-camera confession, while millions across the U.K. are shocked and saddened by the brutal attack.
