    Sad News

    I have been reliably informed by my local counterparts that a male student was found dead this morning. He was discovered at the residence of a local drug addict just a few hours ago. My local friend is on the scene right now. He says the residence has been cordoned off and locals have crowded the surrounding area. I don't know him, but my condolences go out to his family and friends. i guess ross will put out a statement later.

    That section of snippets is actually a "blog-post."

    I could post that 911Med recently eloped with Kiera Knightly and is building a post-nuptial palace on Dominica. Details to follow.

    Until they actually release a confirmed news story, this whole thing looks to be a bunch of baloney.

    Ross University Offers Condolences
    It is with great sadness and regret that we extend our deepest sympathies to the families and friends of *****, a promising medical student, and *****, an equally promising veterinary student.
    Although only 26, *** had already earned a reputation for an abiding commitment to community service and humanistic endeavors. Active in efforts to protect participants in human research, ***** also contributed his great energy to volunteering with VITAS and the Red Cross, among other causes. *****ís wide-ranging interests included a passion for music, sports, politics and a love of life. His future gifts to all of us and the medical profession will be sorely missed.
    A fourth-semester student from Nevada, ***** came to Ross with a longstanding dream to be a veterinarian. Once he began the veterinary program, he worked extremely hard to reach his goals. During his time at Ross, ***** touched many lives, as evidenced by the attendance at his memorial service where more than 500 students, faculty and staff assembled to honor and celebrate his life.
    All of us at Ross University are deeply saddened and devastated by the loss of these two young, bright and talented students, but at the same time, we are proud to have known them.
    Where did you ressurecct this old news from? This article is actually years old. This incident happened a few years ago, when two Ross students were found dead in their apartment, apparently from an OD. This new incident was on the local airwaves all weekend. I heard it myself, since I'm Dominican and listen to the local news. The guy who died on Saturday was a professor and not a student as I was originally informed.
