Campus Public Safety
On Saturday 11/19/11 at around 5:30 P.M., a 23 year old male was a victim of a homicide here in Ashland. The crime occurred on the bike path in Hunter Park, which is located between Normal Avenue and Walker Avenue below the tennis courts. The Ashland Police Department along with the Major Assault and Death Investigation Unit is investigating the case. A suspect or suspects in this case has not been identified and we want everyone to be aware that this crime has occurred locally.
Please be aware of your surroundings when you are out and about. We recommend if you use the bike path to travel in pairs or groups. Plan your activities so that other people know where you are supposed to be and when. If out at night, use a flashlight to guide your way and have a whistle and cell phone handy in case of emergency. 911 gets you to the emergency dispatch center so know your location if you need to call.
Campus Public Safety will provide escorts on campus if requested. Call 541-552-6911 for an escort. We want our campus to be safe and until more information is provided as to the progress of the investigation, we want everyone to use due diligence in where and what they are doing to enhance safety.
