The Wayne State University campus community and coworkers at a prominent local law firm are mourning the death of third-year Law School student Tiane Brown, reported missing early in the week and found dead Wednesday morning. In a statement, Wayne State University President M. Roy Wilson described Brown as "an exceptional and active student" and said her loss was "devastating" to the campus community. He said that the school would offer psychological counseling to those who needed it.
