INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Friends and family of an Indiana-native killed after being taken hostage by ISIS are remembering his birthday.

They say Abdul-Rahman Peter Kassig would have been turning 27.

To help carry his legacy forward, they’re asking people to contribute to the humanitarian scholarship that Butler University established in his honor.
