Steven Sotloff was last seen in the brutal beheading video of James Foley.

In a video statement, his mother Shirley Sotloff spoke directly to the group's leader, noting that her son has no control over U.S. policy and that Islam teaches that no individual should be held responsible for the sins of others.
