A day after a terrorist mowed down dozens of people celebrating Bastille Day in the coastal French city of Nice, investigators dug into the life of the man they say was the killer: A 31-year-old delivery driver and Nice resident who was born in Tunisia.

Authorities said Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel drove a rented, refrigerated truck weighing about 20 tons into crowds along a roughly 2-kilometer stretch of Promenade des Anglais Thursday night, killing 84 people — including 10 children and adolescents — and injuring 202 others.
Among the victims, Sean Copeland, 51, and his 11-year-old son Brodie from Austin, Texas. ¬†They had traveled with Copeland’s wife, Kim, and his two children from a previous marriage –Maegan, 29, and Austin, 22, according to Jess Davis, a family friend. The excursion was in part a celebration of Kim’s and Austin’s birthdays this month.
