On December 15 we asked for your help in spreading the word of the sudden disappearance of Dr. Tosin Oyelowo, a pharmacy resident at the Medical University of South Carolina last seen on December 9. In a sad conclusion to this search conducted by friends, family, and supporters, the police have identified a woman who jumped off of a bridge in Charleston as Dr. Oyelowo.
From The Charleston Observer:
Charleston and Mt. Pleasant police originally declined to identify the jumper as Oyelowo until the body was recovered, but today, Charleston Police Department spokesman Charles Francis said eyewitnesses at the scene had confirmed Oyelowo’s identity. According to an incident report, police found Oyelowo’s car parked at the Shell gas station on the Mt. Pleasant side of the bridge. Her purse and keys were found at the top of the bridge near where she had been seen around 3:40 p.m.
The police are continuing their search for her body in conjunction with the Coast Guard. Our thoughts here at CLUTCH go out to her friends and family during their time of grief.
