UWG Student Death Under Investigation

By Bode Brooks, The WOLF News Director

Carroll County Coroner Keith Hancock confirmed to The WOLF News on Tuesday the death of student Michael Ghee is under open investigation.

“It will be approximately 90 days before we will have the results of the autopsy from the State Medical Examiner. So, at this time we have no information to release,” said Hancock.

On Wednesday, April 3rd an all-student announcement was communicated to UWG students via email and also posted to UWG social media with the following message confirming Ghee’s death.

It is with deep sadness that we grieve the loss of University of West Georgia student Michael Ghee. In these times of tragic loss, our highest priority is to support the family in their time of need. Our thoughts remain with his family, friends, and loved ones. The UWG Counseling Center is available to support fellow students and friends during this time by calling 678-839-6428 or by emailing counseling@westga.edu.

The WOLF News began investigating rumors of a student’s death occurring on campus on March 27th. Twitter user @JasLynn__N tweeted on March 26th, “Sheesh, I was just hooping with this man RIP. #uwg,” presumably confirming claims made to The WOLF News that Ghee died playing a sporting event. The user did not respond to The WOLF News’ request for additional information.

The WOLF News will continue to provide information on further details regarding Ghee’s death as they come available.

Bode Brooks is an international award winning investigative reporter. You can hear more from him on The Power Hour this Tuesday night at 8pm.
