MONROE (WWJ) – A pair of candlelight vigils were held Friday evening in memory of Julia Niswender, the Eastern Michigan University student who was found dead in her off-campus apartment on Tuesday night.

One vigil will be on the EMU campus, the other in Niswender’s hometown of Monroe, where her twin sister, Jennifer, spoke with WWJ.

“I’m just thinking about how much I love her, how much I’m going to miss her, said Jennifer. “Then I’m going to dedicate every day for the rest of my life to her; Justice for Julia is all I’ve got to say.”

Ypsilanti Police say autopsy results in Niswender’s death are still pending but that there were no signs of outward trauma to her body. Toxicology tests are expected back in two to three weeks.

Police are still handling the case as a possible homicide.
