A Marine from McComb has been killed in a bomb attack in Iraq over the weekend.

The Enterprise-Journal reports 22 year old Lance Corporal Casey Casanova was in a transport Friday night when a roadside bomb exploded. She and three other Marines were killed in the attack.

Her father said she "believed she was doing something meaningful and important with her life."

Her mother described her as a selfless and giving person.

Casanova's funeral will be held this weekend in McComb. Hartman Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
