MILWAUKEE (WISN) — A Milwaukee-area native has been identified as one of the Americans killed in coordinated attacks in Sri Lanka.
The Easter Sunday attacks have killed at least 290 people.
Dieter Kowalski, originally from Greenfield, was among the victims, according to WISN-TV.
He worked for Pearson, an education company, and was based in Denver.
Pearson CEO John Fallon wrote to company employees Monday to notify them of Kowalski’s death.
Fallon said Kowalski was a senior leader on a technical operations team.
He had just arrived at his hotel in Colombo when a bomb exploded.
