The two Americans killed in a terror attack in Tajikistan have been identified as avid bicyclers Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan.
The Washington DC couple, who decided last year to leave their jobs and travel around the globe on bikes instead, were remembered as warm-hearted, adventurous and ‘larger than life’.
The article goes on to state the following:
On Sunday, they and two other cyclists were killed when a driver allegedly rammed his car into them and joined his passengers in going after the cyclists with knives.
A Daewoo sedan plowed into a group of seven foreign bicyclists about 60 miles south of the Tajik capital, Dushanbe, on Sunday, according to local police.
The people in the vehicle then ‘exited the car and stabbed the cyclists with knives,’ the U.S. Embassy in Tajikistan said in a statement Monday.
Lauren’s aunt shared her grief with Facebook friends on Monday, and encouraged them to visit the couple’s website to best honor their memories.
‘Lauren and Jay chronicled their journey and experiences with fabulous photographs and captivating blogs. In tribute to them, I invite you to visit their website so that we can remember them for the dream they were outrageously living out and not the way they died.
‘Thanks for your prayers at this time. We need them.’
