On the 13th of May, 23 year-old KU senior Shannon Martin was murdered while in Golfito, Costa Rica doing research. Shannon had worked in the Monarch Watch lab for 6 months and and was about to graduate with honors. She spent a semester in Costa Rica last year with KU’s Study Abroad Program and returned for a week last month to collect additional plant samples for her research. Shannon’s work will be completed by her advisor, Dr. Craig Martin (no relation). Shannon was a very positive and responsible person with a promising future in plant biology. She will be missed by all of us.
