An ETSU art student was found dead in Loudon County as the victim of a car crash.
Diana Guzman, 20, was found on the afternoon of August 20 after she had been reported missing for more than a week by the Greene County Sheriff’s Department.
Guzman’s vehicle, a 2005 Nissan, was traveling southbound on I-75 when it ran of the right hand side of the roadway and rolled several times in the trees, according to an accident report prepared by the Tennessee High Way Patrol. She was ejected from the vehicle.
Guzman was a third-year student majoring in art. She was mostly a part-time student, as she worked full-time. Catherine Murray, who taught Guzman in Murray’s CORE Studio II in the fall of 2015, remembered Guzman well.
“She was well-liked, and a good student,” Murray said. “She was very creative, very vivacious.”
While Guzman was still in her second-year art courses, Murray found her to be an impressive student. She said the entire art department is “terribly upset” at the news of Guzman’s passing.
