The investigation into the homicide of Mia Kanu is actively being pursued, Southfield Police Department’s Deputy Chief of Police Aaron Huguley confirmed, Your Content has learned.

“The investigation is still active,” Huguley shared with CrimeSpace. “As additional information becomes available, we will release it to our local media partners.”

Kanu, a student studying veterinary science at Tennessee State University, was found unconscious on Providence Drive in Southfield, a town located about 15 miles northwest of Detroit. Her lifeless body was discovered following an evening out with friends.

Footage from a surveillance camera obtained by the police recorded a disturbing scene: the 23-year-old being removed from a vehicle. The specifics of whether she was forcibly ejected or fell out are currently unknown.

Kanu’s mother, Bianca Vanmeter, is struggling to understand the circumstances that led to her daughter’s unexpected death. She has voiced concerns over why Kanu’s friends didn’t call for help when she was abandoned. Following the incident, Kanu was rushed to Ascension Providence Hospital where she was pronounced dead on June 5. Her life was sustained until June 8 due to her being an organ donor.
