Report: Eastern Michigan Football Player Victim Of Apparent Homicide
Demarius Reed, a junior wide receiver for the Eastern Michigan football team, was found dead this morning from what police are calling a homicide, according to a reporter on the scene.

Heather Lyke released this statement.

The EMU family has suffered an unbelievable loss today. Demarius was an influential leader who thrived in the classroom and on the field. Everyone gravitated to him and often described him as the 'life of the locker room.' Our hearts go out to Demarius' family. We are doing all we can to help and support them along with the rest of our student-athletes.

Reid, the son of Son of Carl and Tanesha Reed came to EMU from Chicago Illinois where he graduated from Simeon Academy.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mr and Mrs Reed, the EMU Eagles football team, and all of those who knew and loved Demarius.
