  • Detroit Mercy Law Community Mourns Those Killed in Orlando

    We were deeply saddened to learn that Christopher Andrew Leinonen, one of the people murdered on Sunday at the nightclub in Orlando, was the son of one of our graduates, Christine Leinonen ('98). Christopher's partner, Juan Guerrero, was also killed in the nightclub massacre. The two families are now planning a joint funeral instead of the wedding they had been anticipating. The death of every person at the club is tragic. Our prayers and thoughts go out to Christine and her family, to the Guerreros, and the families and friends of every person killed Sunday morning.
