"I'm sure he came to her rescue when she
cut her wrists," Vicki Hill said.
Art Hill, Groesbeck's stepfather, said
Qureshi had threatened to commit suicide
many times before if Groesbeck were to
break off the relationship.
The family is devastated, Vicki Hill said,
but her son's friends and family have con-
tructed a tight support network to cope
with the tragedy.
"We're grateful to have known him for
those 22 years," Vicki Hill said. "We all
learned a lot from Chris, he was a
LSA senior Gayle Giffin worked with
Groesbeck during the summer of 1997 at
the Executive Residence in the Executive
Education Center.
"He was the sweetest," Giffin said, adding
hat Groesbeck's kind, gentle and positive
ersonality made his co-workers warm to
"The news of his death has greatly sad-
dened those at the Executive Residence who
had the opportunity to work with and know
lhim," Giffin said.
Groesbeck's friend, Nick Sadowski,
who grew up with Groesbeck in Sterling
Heights, said he was, "someone who
was really caring to his family and
WSadowski also said his friend loved to
travel and hoped to have a future teaching
job that would allow him to visit other coun-
Groesbeck fulfilled a long-time dream
this past summer when he visited
Europe, Sadowski said.
After returning from that trip, he
said, Groesbeck realized he did not
want a relationship with Qureshi any
Vicki Hill also remembered the first
time her son tried to break-up with

Qureshi in August or September of last
"He use to call me on the phone ... He
was so confused," Hill said.
"She pretty much wanted him all to
herself. She loved him dearly," Vicki Hill
Vicki Hill said she recalls the couple
as being happy for the first year of their
relationship, adding that Qureshi's rela-
tionship with the Hill family was also
good. "I took her into my home," she
needed someone to listen to her, Vicki
Hill said.
Art Hill also said Qureshi was welcomed
into the family's home.
She was a good conversationalist and
seemed to lack a family to love, he said,
adding that she portrayed her relation-
ship with her parents as distant and
Qureshi tried to create that distance
between Groesbeck and his friends by
accusing his friends of flirting with her,
Vicki Hill said.
Qureshi used fabricated stories to con-
vince Groesbeck not to see his friends, she
"Gradually, one-by-one, he wrote off his,
friends because of the stories she told him,"
Vicki Hill said. "His friends offered to take
a lie detector test."
She cited letters found by Groesbeck's
friends and step-father after her son's death
in his apartment as evidence of the manipu-
lation he suffered.
In a letter Qureshi wrote just after a
break-up late last summer, she addresses the
"situation" with Groesbeck's friends.
Qureshi writes that she refuses to have any
further contact with them.
"If you truly care about us and desire
a future for our relationship, you have
to learn how to act in the best interest
for our relationship immediately,"
Qureshi wrote, double-underlining the
last word.

Excerpts from a letter given to Chris Groesbeck
by Natasha Qureshi in the summer of 1998:
"I feel like a better person, or at least that I have the desire and potential to be one.
Now, the hard part is trying to behave and life (sic) my life to become that way."
"Chris, I love you very much and want very much to get through all this bullshit with-
out any scratches to our relationship."
"I never told her (Qureshi's mother) anything about my life, even though it was around
my destructive incident with Vince."
"So, with the situation with you and I, I just became the listener again, even though I
was as much in pain as you were. What this trip has taught me is that I don't want to
be a passive product of my (sad) environment anymore."
"I no longer want to continue to be a victim, sit in my situation and comfort you, even
though I'm suffering. I also have to be firm with you."
.... you have to show me some strength and respect and stand up for yourself,
myself, and our wavering relationship RIGHT NOW, if you care for me still I don't and
will not stay In an unhealthy relationship....
"l.want us to work all this out and I want to see the strong Chris that I know you're
capable of being .... I don't want to live with a pipe dream of you as a knight in shin-
ing armour- I only want it if you're capable of it."
The letter - given to The Michigan Daily byfriends of Chris Groesbeck - was found
in his apartment shortly after his death. It was written after an attempt by Groesbeck to
end his relationship with Qureshi following separate trips by each to Europe.

n't run against the other guy. I just ran for myself, Hansen
Hansen is one of 64 new members who were ushered into the
legislature this term by term limits. With Republicans contro-
ling both legislative houses and the governor's seat, Hansen said
he has quickly learned his place in the power structure.
"The saying, 'absolute power corrupts absolutely.' that's
how it feels to be a freshman" member, Hansen said. "I don't
think it's real healthy for us as a state "
Expanding on his dissatisfaction with the issue of parti-
sanship, Hansen expressed his concern with the way Engler
has shaped his party's presence in the legislature.
Citing Engler's unusually long career in politics, Hansen
said he worries that Engler may possess too much power.
"When you're in it that long, you create an institution in
the image of yourself" he said. "He can steer the resources
in the state to support who he wants."
And Engler isn't the only one participating in partisan pol-
itics, Hansen said, as he described the typical scene on the
house floor.
"Nobody does anything. Nobody pays attention to any-
thing. We all talk on the phone, visit with people, go to the
bathroom," he said. "Because when the time comes to vote,
we know which button we're going to push."
Hansen also addressed Engler's plan, which has created
tension throughout the state, to turn the control of the Detroit
public schools over to Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer. Despite
a strong public outcry against the measure, including an I I -
hour forum for public comments held yesterday, Hansen said
there will be no surprises when the votes are cast.
"We're going to do something to Detroit - I'd feel better if
we were doing it for Detroit, but we're doing it to Detroit- - and
the vote is gong to be 58 to 52. That's just the way it is;' he said.
After beginning his college career at the University in 1961,
Hansen spent more than 30 years working in the public school
system as a teacher, counselor and superintendent of the
Dexter Public Schools system. As the only legislator who has
ever "managed a school," Hansen said he might be able to
offer help if he is allowed to take part in the discussion.
"I am burdened with knowledge of this subject; I am burst-
ing with experience,"he said. "I am not at the table."
Ann Arbor Mayor Ingrid Sheldon also addressed the
crowd yesterday morning. State Rep. Liz Brater (D-Ann
Arbor) and State Sen. Alma Wheeler Smith were scheduled
to speak but did not.

In the same paragraph she condemns him
for having contact with a female friend.
"I would feel terribly hurt and violat-
ed if either you made contact with her
or if you responded favorably to any
contact she makes with you," Qureshi
There is no specification as to the
nature of the relationship with
Groesbeck's female acquaintance.
Art Hill said all the letters he and
Groesbeck's close friends found in the
apartment proved that behind Qureshi's
composed exterior was a unstable and
mentally ill person. Each letter ended
with comments like "We will be togeth-
er forever."
But he said after reading the letters and

learning about Qureshi's instability, he still
never imagined the relationship would have
ended like this.
The cartoons and Raiders games
Groesbeck was fond of were also not
accepted by Qureshi, Vicki Hill said adding
that Qureshi tried to stop her son from
watching them.
But Vicki Hill said, "when it came to the
Raiders it could have been Jdsus Christ and
the game would have went on."
Vicki Hill said her son did not have
another girlfriend, but just realized it
was time to get out of the relationship.
She said her son was, at one point,
very much in love with Qureshi and wor-
ried about hurting her when he wanted
to break up.
