Reward Increased To $10,000 In Murder Of Wayne State Student

DETROIT (WWJ) -- Crime Stoppers is raising its reward for information in the murder of Wayne State student Tiane Brown, who was found murdered in her vehicle at the old Packard Plant on Detroit's east side last Halloween.

The incident took place near Mt. Elliott Street and East Grand Boulevard on Oct. 30, 2013. Brown was a Wayne State Law student and a mother of three.

Crime Stoppers of Michigan's reward of $2,500 was increased by the family to a cash reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads to an arrest. Anyone who has information regarding the crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP or 1-800-773-2587.

All calls and cash rewards are completely anonymous.

WSU President Roy Wilson called Brown a very bright student who held two degrees already — one, a masters in biomedical engineering — and had also started her own nonprofit.

"Tiane's death is a devastating loss to her family, including her three children, her fellow students, and the entire campus community," Wilson said in a statement. "She was an exceptional and active student, and our sympathies extend to her parents, children, family and friends. Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers."
