    There was an update today saying all leads have been exhausted. Still hoping for a break in this case. My heart aches when I think of the family and how painful the unknown must be.

    New tips sought in December death of EMU student

    Tom Greenwood /The Detroit News

    Frustrating but not forgotten, the one-year anniversary of the homicide of Eastern Michigan University student Julia Niswender is approaching.

    It was on Dec. 11, 2012, that the body of the 23-year-old student was found drowned in the bathtub of her off-campus apartment, located just across the street from the campus police station.

    At 11 a.m. Thursday, police and family members will gather at Crime Stoppers’ Detroit office in an effort to keep the death in the public eye...

    Officials confirmed Friday that Eastern Michigan University student Julia Niswender was asphyxiated and then placed into the bathtub where she drowned last December in her off-campus apartment in Ypsilanti.

    "We do know she was asphyxiated prior to being placed in the tub," said Ypsilanti Detective Joe Yuhas.

    Yuhas said police believe Niswender was still alive at that point, but are uncertain if she was unconscious.

    "She was not deceased (beforehand,") Yuhas said. "It's never been determined (if she was unconscious.) But, she was definitely asphyxiated and then drowned."

    Yuhas said the medical examiner's report shows Niswender died as a result of asphyxiation associated with drowning, but he confirmed the asphyxiation occurred prior to her being placed in the bathtub.

    At this point, investigators are still trying to determine how she was asphyxiated.

    "We don't know how she was asphyxiated," Yuhas said, after indicating it could have been done in a number of ways.

    Police have said Niswender was in an "unnatural position" when found, but Yuhas declined to elaborate on that.

    "In order to protect the integrity of the investigation, we really want to keep some of those details to ourselves," Yuhas said.

    much more at link!

    Investigators have said Niswender's room was found in a "disarray," but have yet to release further details, aside from the fact that items of a significant value were still left in the room. Turnquist said there were still-wrapped Christmas presents in her daughter's room.

    Yuhas said police do not believe robbery was the motive.

    Turnquist said Wednesday that she is in possession of Julia's purse, which was untouched, and still has all of her credit cards and identification inside.

    Investigators declined to say whether Niswender's keys were in the room. Yuhas said at a Thursday press conference that the bedroom door was locked from the inside, but her bathroom door was unlocked.

    To date, Yuhas said more than 100 people have been interviewed and "numerous" search warrants have been executed.

    EMU detective will assist Ypsilanti Police in the investigation. I am hopeful this case will find the answers we all seek. Praying for the Niswinder family.

    Eastern Michigan University boosting security with new police officers, cameras, lighting

    YPSILANTI, Mich. -
    Eastern Michigan University says it will be spending more $1.7 million on safety improvement, which will include more police officers, cameras and more lights on campus.

    "Our goal is to maintain the very successful safety and security operations in place on Eastern's campus while also expanding our off-campus presence," said Bob Heighes, EMU's executive director of public safety and chief of police. "These measures, in terms of new staffing and capital improvements, continue our efforts in both of these areas."

    The university is budgeting $820,000 in its general fund operating budget to pay for a significant expansion of the EMU police force this year. Four officers were added this spring, another four will be added this summer, and two more will join the police force in the fall, bringing the EMU police force to 43 officers, the most the university has ever had...
