A young woman whose body was found outdoors at Grand Valley State University was a first-year student from the Detroit area. The cause of Taylor DeRosa's death remains under investigation, though police say there's no immediate threat to the public. DeRosa's body was found Saturday near campus sports fields. She attended Royal Oak High School, according to a GoFundMe page. GVSU President Philomena Mantella says police are asking the public to be patient. Mantella says "misinformation" can have an impact on the investigation.
