BGPD Seeks Information on Dawn Glanz Murder

Dawn Glanz (1946-2013)

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?
