Vigils Tonight for EMU Student

Dec 14, 2012

Two vigils will be held tonight for Eastern Michigan University junior Julia Niswender, who was found dead in her off-campus apartment Tuesday night.

One vigil will be held at 8:30 tonight at the Lakehouse near the Student Center on the Eastern Michigan University campus.  The other will be held at Munson Park in Niswender's hometown of Monroe.

Ypsilanti police are investigating Niswender's death as a "possible homocide".  Preliminary autopsy results were inconclusive and more tests will be conducted to determine the cause of death.
