According to his grieving family, the unidentified 21-year-old man who was among the eight people killed at Travis Scott’s tragic Astroworld concert was a Washington college student.
A photo of the suspect, Axel Acosta, had previously been released by authorities in the hopes of identifying him.
According to his family, Acosta, a Western Washington State University computer science student, went to the disastrous show by himself.
His aunt, Cynthia Acosta, told the station that it was the first time he had attended such a gathering.
According to police, Acosta was one of the concertgoers killed in the deadly crush of concertgoers on Friday night.
At least two Houston-area high school students were among those killed in the melee, whose ages ranged from 14 to 27.
