Third-year law student Mosupatsela Karabo Vika Moleah, 26, died Thursday night in Philadelphia, according to an email sent to students Friday afternoon from Vice President of Student Affairs Erin Hoffmann Harding.

Moleah had been studying in the law school’s Washington, D.C., program this semester but previously lived in the Fischer O’Hara Grace student community, according to the email.

“We realize that many of you may have been impacted by Kar’s death,” she said. “The University Counseling Center (574-631-7336) and Campus Ministry (574-631-8011) are both available to offer their support to you and other members of our community. Please know that you can contact these offices even if you are away from campus. A campus memorial mass will be announced and held soon, with details shared as they become available.”

A memorial service for Moleah will take place in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on Tuesday, April 5.
