Police have identified the deceased woman discovered in an Ypsilanti-area apartment earlier this week.
Alyson Doulos, aged 48, was found dead in a unit located in Schooner Cove Apartments on Bosuns Way in Ypsilanti Township on Monday, March 13.
The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office had been contacted for a welfare check and upon being unable to locate Doulos, deputies forcibly entered the apartment where they discovered her deceased.
According to police, there were no other individuals present in the apartment, and they are treating the case as a homicide.
Alyson Doulos was an English teacher who taught 10th grade at Jackson High School, where she also served as the National Honor Society advisor since 2020.
Previously, she had taught English at Jackson College. The news of her death was a great shock to those who knew her, including Todd Butler, the Dean of Humanities and Sciences at the college, who expressed his condolences to Doulos’ family and spoke highly of her teaching abilities.
Kriss Giannetti, the assistant superintendent of communications, also praised Doulos and mentioned that her students at the high school were fond of her and saddened by her passing.
