Stephanie Brown, a young 17 year-old, niece, sister, daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter died March 16, 2007, as a result of being hired by a local strip-club in Lincoln Park, MI and given drugs by a patron (volunteer basket-ball coach) another patron (ordained minister) and co-worker (dancer) that caused her death.


LINCOLN PARK, MI — Acknowledging that they have failed in enforcing a city ordinance in the past, the Police Department is now demanding that nude dancers be licensed. The enforcement decision comes days after it was publicly revealed that an underage Wyandotte girl was allowed to dance nude in March at the Atlantis Lounge, 863 Dix-Toledo. Hours later, she was found near death in a nearby motel after allegedly taking a large amount of drugs supplied to her by a customer. She died a short time later. While some dancers and club workers obeyed the ordinance and began the city's registration process last year, the Police Department never followed up on the matter. Stephanie Michelle Brown, 17, danced at the Atlantis on March 15 and left with another performer after two men told the dancers that they would take them to a place where they could earn more money, police said.
