The family of one of the American victims of the Algeria hostage crisis spoke out Tuesday. Victor Lovelady's brother and daughter told the world a bit more about the man they lost.

"I just want to know how my brother died.it means a lot to me. They told us they don't think he suffered and I want to know that because that's closure for me," Mike Lovelady said.

"My whole life he always told me good things happen to good people. And I was a good persona and good things were going to happen for me." Erin Lovelady added, "He always told us that and that's what makes this so hard because of how good he was and that he didn't deserve that."
