Dawn Glanz, a professor of Art History at Bowling Green State University, wife of Robert A. Brown of Toledo, OH, and stepmother to Josh Brown of Sylvania, OH, died at her home on Kensington Blvd. in Bowling Green, OH on May 9, 2013.
In December 2013, her death was ruled a homicide by the Wood County Coroner. (“Sharp Force Injury of the Scalp” – “Stabbed By Assailant”)
We wish to remind the public of her death and the fact that as of now, in spite of the ongoing efforts of the Bowling Green Police Department and its investigative services, for which we are thankful, no one has been held accountable.
If you saw or heard anything, no matter how small it may seem, or have any information as to what may have happened at Dawn’s home on the night of May 8, 2013 or the early morning of May 9, 2013, we would appreciate it if you would contact the Bowling Green Police Division at (419) 352-2571 or call CRIME STOPPERS at (419) 352-0077.
Even a very small piece is needed to complete a puzzle. Do you have one of the missing pieces?

BOWLING GREEN POLICE DIVISION TAKING BACK UNWANTED PRESCRIPTION DRUGS April 30 AT WOOD COUNTY HOSPITAL
Bowling Green, Ohio – On April 30th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Bowling Green Police Division and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its 11th opportunity in six years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the main entrance of the Wood County Hospital at 950 W. Wooster Street in Bowling Green, Ohio 43402. This entrance is located on the eastside of the building. (The DEA cannot accept liquids, needles, or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
Last September, Americans turned in 350 tons (over 702,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at more than 5,000 sites operated by the DEA and more than 3,800 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 10 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 5.5 million pounds—more than 2,750 tons—of pills.
This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.
