Two Americans who went missing after Tuesday’s terrorist attacks in Belgium are dead, their relatives confirmed Saturday.

Justin Shults, 30, was with his wife Stephanie, 29, sending off Stephanie’s mother at the Brussels airport when the explosions went off, killing the couple, his family said, NBC reported.

“We found out today that cowards took my brother’s life,” Levi Sutton, Shults‘ brother wrote on Twitter.

Shults‘ employer, Clarcor, confirmed in a statement that he was killed, NBC reported. Stephanie was missing, but her husband’s family later confirmed her death, also.

The couple moved to Brussels in 2014. Justin is originally from Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and Stephanie is from Lexington, Kentucky.

“I was blessed to have Justin as a big brother. He was smart and kind and generous. I never met a single person that didn’t like him,” Mr. Sutton said in a statement posted on Twitter.

“He worked hard his whole life and achieved goals that most could only dream about. He traveled the world leaving each destination better than when he arrived. Knowing that I’ll never be able to see him again hurts, but it’s worse that my future children will never get to know their uncle Justin as he wouldn’t been a tremendous role model.”

Earlier this week it was confirmed that New York City siblings Sacha and Alexander Pinczowski were killed in the attacks.

Suicide bombers attacks the Brussels airport and a Subway station killing 31 people and injuring hundreds more on Tuesday. The Islamic State terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack.
