Tiane Brown was a third year law student who was an aspiring young woman who wanted her town to be a better place. At Wayne State University, she was vocal and adamant about helping the city of Detroit to be safer for growing kids.

After going missing for three days, her body was found in a vacant lot near the Packard plant- a long shut factory in an empty lot. Sadly, the student was outspoken against what calls “the city’s pervasive violence.”


Tiane Brown was a mother to three kids, and she was earning her fourth degree. She never returned home on Monday night after class at the law school. Her body was located in her SUV; the Detroit Police Department noted that the 33 year old mother was shot in the head.

Two people who were found with her cell phone were arrested. Whether they had any involvement in her death is not known at this time.

Her mother, Sheryl Jones spoke at a vigil at the law school. “She was such a strong woman. I never imagined anything like this would happen. This hurts so much.” Several hundred of her fellow classmates turned up to honor her life at a 30 minute ceremony held at WSU.

Tiane Brown held a master’s degree in biomedical engineering, an MBA, and a bachelor’s degree in biology. Detroit Police Chief James Craig spoke at a news conference at the police headquarters. “It’s a tragic day because Tiane was special to so many, someone striving to be a key part of this city.”

Her friend and classmate from law school noted that she was uber-intelligent, hard-working and “the rock of her family.” She is mourned by her college and her surviving family members. WSU President M. Roy Wilson has established a fund for her surviving three children who will see their mother posthumously granted a degree. They will be granted free tuition at the Detroit school when they are college ready.
