Parthai Lumbantoruan's family in Indonesia told the AP that they sold off property and cars to pay his tuition and that his goal was to become a teacher in the United States. His father says Lumbantoruan, a 34-year-old doctoral student, had been studying civil engineering at Virginia Tech for three years. His stepmother says he had called almost daily to talk to the family. In their last conversation, he had asked for the latest news on Indonesian politics. She wants to know how people can bring guns to campus and kill innocent people. Family members are planning a public burial in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta.
