Puerto Rican Dies at Virginia Tech Massacre

Juan Ramón Ortiz Ortiz, 26 years old was one of the 32 victims of the Virginia Tech massacre in Blacksberg, Virginia on Monday. He had been a magna cum laude graduate of the Politechnical University of San Juan, Puerto Rico and was teaching at Virginia Tech as part of his masters degree in engineering.

From the information I have been able to gather his father Juan Ramón Ortiz, heard of the incident over the radio and had attempted to call his son with no luck. When he got to his home he heard the cries of his wife and knew that something serious had happened.
