Detroit Police release new photos in murder of Wayne State student Tiane Brown

DETROIT (WXYZ) - The Detroit Police Department has released new pictures in the death of a Wayne State University Law student and mother of three.

The pictures are of two men police want to question in the death of Tiane Brown. Officers say they have information in the case.

"No one has a right to take another individual's life.  That's not something you do," said her father Nate Jones.

Brown disappeared in late October. Her body was found on October 30, near the Packard Plant, in the area of E. Grand Boulevard and Palmer. She had been shot.

"Some days you can do what you normally do but then it just hits you, somebody took this girls life," said Jones.

Brown  had a masters in bio-medical engineering, an MBA, and was working on a law degree.  

Tiane Brown's mom says her daughter was a mother of three with big dreams of bringing others justice as a lawyer.  Her children are ages 14, 8, and one and a half.

"The oldest one is taking it the hardest.  There are times she wakes up crying," said Tiane's mother Sheryl Jones.  "The second one, she at one point didn't want to talk about it but now she's asking questions. And the baby what she does she umm looks at her picture and stares at her picture."

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call Crime stoppers at 1 (800) SPEAK UP. A reward of up to $2,500 is being offered in the case.

"We don't understand why.  We don't understand.  We can't make any sense of it," said Sheryl Jones.
