J.K. Rowling pays touching tribute to Orlando victim who worked at Harry Potter World
As the victims begin to emerge of the hate-fueled acts in Orlando early Sunday night, the world is seeing the faces of the 50 people through their social media pages.
One such victim was 22-year-old Luis Vielma, who worked at Universal Orlando Resort on the Harry Potter Forbidden Journey ride, according to his profile. Rowling shared a photo of Vielma wearing a grey sweater-vest over a white Oxford shirt with his loosened Gryffindor tie.
“I can’t stop crying,” she wrote in the early morning hours Monday.

Thus far, just 21 victims have been named by the City of Orlando as the authorities work to contact next-of-kin.
