News that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi may have died today in Sirte has prompted response from around the world.
Families of Pan Am Flight 103 passengers from around the Boston area responded in their own ways.
Eleanor Bright is the widow of Nicholas Bright, who was one of 178 people from the U.S. who died that December day in 1988 when the Boeing 747 exploded over the small town of Lockerbie, Scotland.
Ther Boston Herald reports that Bright believes Gaddafi being killed may mean she may never role what he may have played in the death of her husband and the other 258 passengers and crew that day, besides the 11 people killed on the ground when the plane crashed.
Nicholas Bright, who was from Brookline, was 32 years old. A business consultant who worked for Bain Capital, he apparently was a colleague of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the presidential candidate.
His widow Eleanor reportedly had been critical of U.S. officials and their inquiry into who blew up the plane.
