The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.
Shaniece Mona Briggs
A mother of four children, 26-year-old Shaniece Briggs has not been seen since June 19.
Columbus Police Detective Jon Compson said “some things in [Briggs’] background that we had found after digging into her life,” combined with her live-in boyfriend uncertain of her whereabouts, raised “red flags.”
Compson said Briggs’ case is not “typical.”
“We have some information that caused us to have some concern,” he said, but he declined to elaborate.
Columbus Police say Briggs’ was last seen on the city’s East Side.
Relatives are taking care of her children.
Anyone with additional information or questions regarding this case should contact Columbus Police Department at (614) 645-4545.
