2 vigils to mark anniversary of EMU student death

Posted: Updated:
YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) -

Candlelight vigils are planned for a 23-year-old Eastern Michigan University student whose bathtub drowning last December was ruled a homicide.
 
Family of Julia Niswender plans the first Monday evening. Participants plan to meet at the lakehouse on the school's Ypsilanti campus. They'll walk to the edge of campus, ending near where Niswender lived.
 
The family plans to dedicate the vigil to some others slain in the last year in Ypsilanti, including Eastern Michigan football player Demarius Reed.
 
A second vigil is Tuesday evening in Monroe.
 
Niswender was a Monroe native and an undergraduate. Her body was found Dec. 11, 2012, at an apartment across the street from campus.
 
Ypsilanti police said in August that they had exhausted most viable leads. The investigation continues.
