The Black Greek community is currently mourning the loss of 19-year-old Alfred Lillard Motlow III of Omega Psi Phi.
FAMU students, Alfred Motlow, 19, and his girlfriend, Aniya Brown, 20, were among three people killed when a speeding car crashed into their vehicle in Shelby County, Tennessee while heading back to school after their winter break earlier this month.
According to the university, both Motlow and Brown were sophomores majoring in engineering. Motlow had just crossed Omega Psi Phi the semester before and was a Fall 2017 initiate of the Upsilon Psi Chapter of the fraternity at FAMU.
The brothers of the Mighty Melodic Bloody Up Upsilon Psi Chapter would like to send our deepest condolences to the family and friends of our beloved chapter brother Alfred Lillard Motlow III. Brother Motlow III tragically passed away this morning in a fatal car accident. We ask that you keep his family and friends in your prayers. #AMIII #11Forever #LongLiveTrey
FAMU released the following statement about the two students:
“University officials would like to extend heartfelt condolences to their families and friends and offer support to relatives and the FAMU community through the FAMU Office of Counseling Services.”
Faculty, staff and students also held a vigil for both Motlow and Brown.
According to social media, over 50 brothers from Tallahassee alone, traveled to pay their respects and comfort the family of Motlow.
“Definitely one of the hardest but most rewarding days of my life yesterday,” a brother who goes by the handle theroyleking wrote. “Over 50 brothers traveled from Tallahassee to say our last goodbye but bigger than that be there for Trey’s family. I will always take his last message to us and look at the story of Job with new meaning, forever trusting God.”
