Associated PressRosemary Wolfe, who lost her stepdaughter, Miriam Wolfe, said the United States should continue to investigate the Flight 103 bombing even after Gadhafi’s death. Syracuse, NY – Families with ties to Central York who lost loved ones aboard Pan Am Flight 103 reacted to the death of Moammar Gadhafi whom many hold responsible for the 1988 bombing of the plane over Lockerbie, Scotland. Thirty-five Syracuse University students were among the 270 killed on that flight Dec. 21, 1988. Rosemary Wolfe, who lost her stepdaughter Miriam, a 20-year-old student studying musical theater, holds Gadhafi responsible. “It took a long time but they got him,” Wolfe said from her North Myrtle Beach, S.C., home. “It was just a matter of time before his own people got him. He spent years killing his own people, torturing his own people.” “Well, I’m very happy,” she said. “It’s great news, it’s a great day.” Wolfe said she heard one of Gadhafi’s sons was captured. “I would rest easier if all his sons were captured and there were no possibility that his (Gadhafi’s) supporters could begin again,” she said. Wolfe also called on the Obama administration to continue to press for details of the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103. “Who else was involved in Libya and elsewhere?” she asked. “All this hasn’t gone away just because Gadhafi’s dead.” Wolfe called on the United States to continue to hold onto Libyan assets until Libyans “who indicated they know something give us that information.” “This can’t be buried now. That’s what I’m concerned about.” Associated Press Susan Cohen, pictured in 2009, said she plans to celebrate the reported death of Moammar Gadhafi with a champagne toast. Cohen’s daughter was killed in the Flight 103 bombing. Susan Cohen, mother of Syracuse University student Theodora Cohen who died in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, said she would open a bottle of champagne and raise a glass to the people of Libya. “I think it’s marvelous,” said Cohen of Cape May Courthouse, N.J. “This will be the happiest day of my life since Dec. 21, 1988. I owe it all to the Libyan people.” Cohen blamed Gadhafi for her daughter’s death. “You could not deal with him,” she said . “He was a ghastly tyrant. “I’m going to celebrate his death. It should have happened earlier by the hand of the United States.” Richard Monetti Kara M. Weipz, sister of SU student Richard Monetti who died on Flight 103, heard the news of Gadhafi’s today in a phone call at her New Jersey home from a friend as she got her three boys ready for school. The news, she said, was “a shock.” “I think that the world is a better place today,” Weipz said. “He cannot hurt or torture any other people today.” “Many compliments to the people of Libya,” she said. She said she also took some time to remember the people lost on the flight. She has made trips to Syracuse to see the memorial on the SU campus for its students lost in the bombing of the flight. “It’s a wonderful place to be,” she said. “I’m thankful to the administration, and especially Hillary Clinton, who have never forgotten the people of Pan Am Flight 103,” she said.
