A goodbye too soon
Hopkins community gathers to celebrate the life of slain student

Linda Trinh's family with President
and Mrs. Brody

More than 1,200 members of the Johns Hopkins University community packed the gymnasium of Homewood's Ralph S. O'Connor Recreation Center on Wednesday morning to memorialize Linda Trinh, a fallen classmate, pupil, friend and family member.
   Trinh, a 21-year-old biomedical engineering major from Silver Spring, Md., was found dead on Sunday, Jan. 23, in her residence in a privately owned building across Charles Street from the Homewood campus. The case, currently under investigation, has been determined to be a homicide.

The President's Office and deans of the schools of Arts and Sciences and Engineering have committed an initial $2 million to finance the improvements, which include the hiring of off-duty police and tightening security measures at residence halls.
