Petition to implement heightened safety features on campus gains traction after discovery of Brendan Santo's body
"We're constantly evaluating improvements to our campus to further the safety and security of our Spartan Community and guests," MSU spokesperson Dan Olsen said. "We're having conversations about this particular space on campus and looking at additional measures to make it safer for our community."
Ryan Robison had been working on Santo’s disappearance for 15 days. According to a Facebook post, Robinson went to the Santo house and informed them just before midnight on Thursday.
Michigan State University Police and Public Safety found a body in the Red Cedar River at 12:30 p.m. in Lansing, 1.5 miles downriver of where Brendan Santo was last seen. Identification of the body is pending, but the body is believed to be that of Santo.
"It could be possible to do a partial dam if there was a very specific area to concentrate on,” MSU spokesperson Dana Whyte said in a Jan. 19 email to the State News.
