Daughter Of Man Murdered By Pirates Issues Statement

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The daughter of Scott Adam, killed Tuesday by pirates off the coast of Somalia, issued a statement on behalf of her family.

“Our loved ones were tragically taken from us and our hearts are broken. While we wish to grieve in private, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to the brave men and women of the Navy and other military branches who risked their lives trying to save them.

We would also like to thank the FBI and State Department for their swift and kind treatment of this matter.

Our hearts also go out to the families of Bob Riggle and Phyllis Macay. We cannot thank you all enough.

In our time of loss, we ask the media to please respect our right to privacy and not contact us at this time. We do not anticipate issuing any further statements in this matter, at this time. God bless each and every one of you.
