Who is Taylor DeRosa? Taylor DeRosa Bio/Wiki
The student at Grand Valley State University whose body was discovered over the weekend was identified as Taylor DeRosa, a Royal Oak first-year student, college officials said Tuesday.
University police and the Sheriff’s Office of Ottawa County continue their investigation into her death, finding it “suspicious.” It has not been determined as the cause of her death.
She was 18 years old.
The GoFundMe page mentions that DeRosa was studying international business at GVSU with a minor in French. In memory of DeRosa, GVSU will hold a vigil on Wednesday, December 16, at 7 p.m.
DeRosa has been passionate about many causes and has been active throughout her life in numerous organizations and sports, including the spirit club, diploma program, interaction club, and she was a member of the Royal Oak High School lacrosse team, where she graduated in the spring of 2020.
The body of DeRosa was found by a runner near the intermural athletic fields at the university on Saturday morning, 12 December. No information on DeRosa’s cause of death was given. The post on Facebook by the GVSU police department informed students and the community that “it appears the general public and the campus community are not in danger.”
It is with a heavy heart and unimaginable sadness that I regret to inform you my daughter, Taylor DeRosa, passed away on…
Both the president of the GVSU and the police department encouraged the group to let the investigation run its course to avoid disseminating disinformation on social media. In a news release, GVSU wrote. “Misinformation is not helpful to the investigation or to the family of our student. Truthful and accurate updates will come from police authorities and the university when appropriate,”
