Two days ago I wrote about my reaction to the death of Brittany Dennis, a 20-year-old mass communications major at Winston-Salem State University. At the time, the cause of death was unknown. The autopsy reports are in. Ms. Dennis’ cause of death was a heart deficiency.

happy birthday dr. martin luther king, jr.

Yesterday morning, my facebook newsfeed was filled with Winston-Salem State University Alumni saying, “R.I.P. Brittany Dennis. Your family, friends and students at WSSU are in my prayers.” I immediately went to Google and typed her name in the search engine. News links came up with the subject “WSSU Sophomore Found Dead in Dorm Room.” Brittany, a 20-year-old Mass Communications major, was found dead in her Wilson Hall dorm room by her roommate on Wednesday evening.

The cause of death unknown.

This hit me deeply for a moment because I am a 2002 Mass Communications graduate of Winston-Salem State University, and I resided in Wilson Hall for my sophomore and junior year. I put myself in the shoes of Brittany’s roommate and imagined me finding Tiffany, Candice or Shay’s (Wilson Hall are four man, two bedroom suites) lifeless bodies…

Lord, be with her roommate.
