Dylann Roof's sister was supposed to be married tomorrow, but his alleged murder of nine people inside a Charleston church has forced her to postpone, reports People. Amber Roof, 27, was scheduled to wed Army Reserve recruiter Michael Tyo at a venue in Lexington, South Carolina, but the ceremony has been canceled. Some reports say it was Amber Roof who called police to identify her brother in surveillance photos after the massacre, though his arrest warrant states that it was his father and uncle, reports USA Today. Either way, the family issued a statement yesterday saying it was appalled by the attack and offering sympathy to the victims' families. (More Dylann Roof stories.)
