the death at e.m.u.

It doesn’t seem as though there’s any evidence to support it, but the “Ann Arbor News” is suggesting that Laura Dickinson, the student found dead a few days ago in an EMU dorm, may have died as the result of some kind of violent act… Stay tuned for further developments.

    As previously mentioned, having a daughter of my own is making me soft. Death is by nature sad, but, for better or worse, I’m now more genetically hard-wired to daddy/daughter death scenarios.

    Thinking of my own girl dying of unknown cause in college is devasting. That the A2 News picked the most sensationalist headline to (quite effectively) lure readers to drop 50 cent in the box is miserable.

    In my current outrage, that will in calmer moments subside, I find it hard to swallow that I trust the folks who ran the headline as a soure of any public info, whatsoever.

    The only headline that would be better is… “EMU President Fallon not ruled out as suspect in death of nubile undergrad.”

    The Ypsilanti Courier gets a point for their headline on the story:

    Student found dead at Hill Hall
    Results from autopsy unable to determine cause of death

    It would now be interesting to note that the cause of death was indeed violent. Maybe someone at the “Ann Arbor News” actually knew what they were talking about? Its a shame everyone is so trusting of the authorities.

    So, come Monday, who’s out of a job? Vick and Hall, definitely. How ’bout Fallon?

    No evidence, except for the semen on her thigh.

    And a guy who admitted jizzing on her dead body, although he claims it was masturbatory, after she was dead.

    Information on the December murder of EMU student Julia Niswender is finally being released. She was apparently drowned in her bathtub.
