This, which is in the CNN-IBN source: Beatle Rag University, seems to be a completely made-up place and not referred to in any other source, I removed it from the story. --SVTCobra 18:24, 14 December 2007 (UTC)Reply

Regarding the move made from "... Indian students..." to "... PhD students..." – one of the main reasons why this made news in the first place was that both the students were Indians and that the murders occurred in Louisiana. — Nearly Headless Nick {C} 09:52, 16 December 2007 (UTC)Reply

It is not so much their race that is being mention as it is their nationality. Would a title of "Two German students shot in Michigan" be deemed inappropriate? When people are killed in a foreign country their nationality is usually mentioned. --SVTCobra 15:27, 17 December 2007 (UTC)Reply
