Victims shot dead in San Bernardino terror attack revealed

All 14 victims killed in the San Bernardino massacre have now been identified by the coroner after completing their investigation Thursday at the Inland Regional Center.

Among the dead were a mother-of-three who had fled Islamic extremism in Iran as a teenager, a 26-year-old mother with a young son, and the 60-year-old cousin of New York Giants player Nat Berhe. 

'This shooting has caused each victim's family, friends and co-workers, along with the first responders, to suffer an enormous personal tragedy,' Sheriff John McMahon said. 

'We must stand strong and offer support to each individual affected by this senseless attack.'
Those killed in the shooting are: Shannon Johnson, 45, of Los Angeles; Bennetta Bet-Badal, 46, of Rialto; Aurora Godoy, 26, of San Jacinto; Isaac Amanios, 60, of Fontana; Larry Kaufman, 42, of Rialto; Harry Bowman, 46, of Upland; Yvette Velasco, 27, of Fontana; Sierra Clayborn, 27, of Moreno Valley; Robert Adams, 40, of Yucaipa; Nicholas Thalasinos, 52, of Colton; Tin Nguyen, 31, of Santa Ana; Juan Espinoza, 50, of Highland; Damian Meins, 58, of Riverside; and Michael Wetzel, 37, of Lake Arrowhead. 

According to dailymail authorities identified Syed Rizwan Farook, a 28-year-old county restaurant inspector, and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, 27, as the two people directly behind the shooting.

The hell-bent couple opened fire on the social services center shortly after Farook slipped away from a party banquet he was attending there for work. 

Whether the deadly shooting was an act of domestic terrorism or the result or workplace-related is still under investigation.  

Aurora Godoy leaves behind a young son and her husband, James Godoy.
She was the youngest of the 14 victims.  

Friends paid tribute to the forever-smiling 26-year-old from San Jacinto as 'happy' and 'the sweetest'.

Her aunt, Rebecca Godoy, wrote on Facebook Thursday: 'Yesterday in the shootings in San Bernardino many families were affected. Ours was one of them. My dear niece was one of them.

 She lost her life (as) a victim of murder by individuals who don't deserve to be named by the media. There are other victims that our hearts go out for. We will keep her flame alive so that her young son does not forget his special mother. God bless us all.'

Mother of three Betbadal lived in New York from 1987 for some time before moving to California, where she met and married her husband, Arlen Verdehyou.

The two were married in 1997, settled in Rialto and had three children - two boys and a girl now ages 10, 12, and 15, The San Bernardino Sun reported.

Tin Nguyen was a food inspector for the San Bernardino County Department of Health.

Family members said that she was planning a wedding for next year at the time of her death, The San Bernardino Sun reported.
A friend, Kim Oanh, wrote on social media: 'She was the most amazing person anyone could ever meet.
'Her heart was bigger than the sun, and her personality was addicting.
The list goes on

May their souls Rest In Peace and I hope America wil lcome up with a strong gun control law
