Video: College mourns Watson's passing

Mercyhurst College students and faculty came together Sunday, Nov. 29, 2010 at Christ the King Chapel to mourn the passing of Jenni-Lyn Watson. She was a junior dance major at the college who disappeared the day after returning home to Liverpool, N.Y. for Thanksgiving Break.

Her former boyfriend, Steven Pieper of Clay, N.Y., has been charged with second degree murder in the case. Investigation into her murder is ongoing, as is the college and Liverpool’s grieving process.

Teacher Tauna Hunter and classmates Amy Deer and Rachel Torgesen speak about Watson and her memorial in the video above.
