Western Washington University students, faculty and staff and members of the Bellingham community gathered on campus Wednesday night to remember student Timothy Crossan, who fell to his death Monday from the roof of Nash Hall. The Whatcom County Medical Examiner has ruled Crossan's death a suicide.
Various speakers encouraged the gathered crowd before a candlelight procession to Red Square. Among the speakers was Crossan's mother, Susan, who asked attendees to do good deeds in Timothy Crossan's name.
