      Police exhaust most leads in EMU student's death

      Julia Niswender was a Monroe native and was an undergraduate. Her body was found Dec. 11 at an apartment across the street from the campus police station.

      YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) - Police say they've exhausted most viable leads in the case of a 23-year-old Eastern Michigan University student whose December bathtub drowning was ruled a homicide.

      Ypsilanti police Lt. Deric Gress says in a statement to AnnArbor.com that there are "some things still at the lab, but no new leads" in the death of Julia Niswender. He says detectives have "exhausted most of the viable leads at this point." Julia Niswender was a Monroe native and was an undergraduate. Her body was found Dec. 11 at an apartment across the street from the campus police station. Family members have said that the apartment door was locked and that there were no signs of struggle, but that the apartment was in disarray. The investigation continues. A $10,000 reward is being offered.
