American ISIS hostage Kayla Mueller has been confirmed dead, the 26-year-old's family said in a statement on Tuesday.
"We are heartbroken to share that we've received confirmation that Kayla Jean Mueller, has lost her life," Mueller's parents said in a statement released four days after the militant group claimed the Arizona native had been killed by a coalition airstrike near Raqqa, Syria.
