MILWAUKEE (AP) - The parents of Marquette University graduate James Foley say the purported death of the masked Islamic State militant known as “Jihadi John” provides little solace in the wake of the loss of their son.

A U.S. drone strike targeted a vehicle in Syria believed to be transporting Mohammed Emwazi, the British man who appears in several videos depicting the beheadings of Western hostages, including Foley.

John and Diane Foley, of New Hampshire, say the death does nothing to bring their son back.

Marquette issued a statement Friday saying the university continues to focus on celebrating Foley’s life and hopes his family and friends continue to heal and find peace. The university has established a scholarship in Foley’s name.
