    Authorities have identified Mary Louise Amzibel as the fifth person killed in last week’s shooting at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

    Broward County spokeswoman Kimberly Maroe released the name of the 69-year-old in an email Wednesday night. Originally from Ashtabula, Ohio, Amzibel lived in Dover, Delaware, according to a memorial Facebook page set up in her honor.

    Calls to Amzibel’s North Dover home went unanswered. 

    Maroe also confirmed the names of the other four victims, whose names were initially released through family statements. They are 70-year-old Shirley Wells Timmons of Ohio; 57-year-old Michael John Oehme of Council Bluffs, Iowa; 84-year-old Olga M. Woltering of Marietta, Georgia; and 62-year-old Terry Michael Andres of Virginia Beach, Virginia.

    Esteban Santiago is accused of fatally shooting the five and injuring six others in the airport’s baggage claim area Friday. The 26-year-old Iraq war veteran remains jailed without bond on federal charges.
