Campus opens for business as police investigate Nicolet Drive crime scene
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay opened for business at 6 a.m. today (Monday, June 8) as city police continue to investigate the overnight discovery of an apparent homicide victim in a car parked at Communiversity Park.
Nicolet Drive remains open for traffic. Police are continuing their patrols but say they have no reason to believe any suspect or suspects remain in the area. Communiversity Park is located along the bayshore about one-half mile from the main academic buildings of the central campus.
University Police Chief Tom Kujawa distributed notice to members of the campus community of the situation via emails and GB Alert text messages during the 3 o’clock hour this morning. Kujawa says a UW-Green Bay officer on routine patrol discovered the apparent victim, a female, at about 2:30 a.m.
In a 6:25 a.m. email update, Kujawa shared the following:
The case has been turned over to Green Bay Police Department for investigation. The victim is not a student and we do not believe she had ties to the campus community. Officers from UW-Green Bay and the Green Bay Police Department are on scene and will continue to patrol the campus and surrounding area.
No (weapon) has been located at this time. No (assailant) has been located at this time.
The campus buildings, routinely locked at night, are now open for business. Please stay off the campus trails at this time.
