Peter Kassig’s former professor from Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana describes Kassig as an empathetic person who wanted to heal the “brokenness of the world”. Kassig was killed by Islamic State militants.

Peter Edward Kassig, age 26 years old when he was killed, was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. On October 1, 2013 he was on his way to Deir Ezzour in eastern Syria to deliver food and medical supplies to refugees when he was taken captive by ISIL. While in captivity he was beaten regularly, and was reportedly converted to Islam from Methodist. He also changed his name to Abdul-Rahman Kassig. He was imprisoned in a cell with French journalist Nicolas Henin and British journalist John Cantlie.

Kassig was named as the victim of the next scheduled beheading in a video released by ISIL on October 3, 2014.

On Sunday, November 16, 2014, ISIL posted a video showing “Jihadi John” standing over a severed human head. The person in the video was later confirmed to be Peter Kassig. The beheading was not shown and the there was no statement from Kassig, as have occurred in other videos. Some pundits speculate that Kassig might have resisted and might have refused to provide a statement.

In the same video reporting Kassig’s death, ISIS also included the beheading of 18 Syrian soldiers in gruesome detail and revealed the location as Dabiq in Aleppo Province. Dabiq is a small town in northern Syria near the border of Turkey. Some extremists believe Dabiq will be the final (as in Armageddon-like) front line of a war where Christian and Muslim armies will clash and the Crusaders will be destroyed.

Kassig was the only child of Ed, a school teacher, and Paula Kassig, a nurse.
