(Before It's News)

In Nice, France, the death toll from the terror attack last night now stands at 84. The flags at the White House are at half mast. France is reeling. People around the world are saddened and angered, or in some cases the opposite. But that grief is is not just abroad. It has hit here, deep in the heart of Texas.

Sean Copeland, 51, and his son Brodie, 11, of Lakeway, Texas are among the deceased. Killed by terror. The family’s statement:

“We are heartbroken and in shock over the loss of Brodie Copeland, an amazing son and brother who lit up our lives, and Sean Copeland, a wonderful husband and father. They are so loved.”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott release a statement:

“While every heinous attack like this is tragic, this latest one hits close to home,” Abbott’s statement read in part. “Cecilia and I ask that Texans join us in praying for all of the victims, and especially the Copeland family as they mourn the loss of a devoted father and loving son.”

Here’s more from Austin station KVUE:

You probably haven’t heard if you watch cable news, but the man who killed those 84 people was named Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, of Tunisia. MSNBC has been calling him a “lone attacker” and a “small time criminal.” Witnesses reported the womanizing former convict screamed “Allahu Akbar” before he drove his truck into the crowd.

But expect continue hearing the usual commentary from talking heads like “loner” or “not religious” or “disturbed.”
