In Loving Memory of Shanica "Nicaboo" Adkins

A senior at UW-Madison, Shanica Wynette Adkins, was killed during the early hours of December 31, 2009. The driver who struck the vehicle of Shanica and her long-time boyfriend, Donta Brown, was fleeing the police at speeds that were said to have reached 100 mph. Shanica died instantly from neck and head trauma. Donta was rushed to the hospital and was in critical condition. They didn't know if he was going to make it or not. Donta was released from the hospital late last week. Memorial services for Shanica were held on Friday, January 8, 2010. The University of Wisconsin-Madison is holding a campus-wide memorial for her on Monday, January 25, 2010. All are encouraged to attend.
