The student, freshman sociology major Jordyn-Rhea Tuiasosopo, was found Feb. 5 in her residence hall room.

No drugs or alcohol were found in her system. Congestive cardiac failure was found to be the most likely cause of death.

“Right now, it’s closed at our end,” Hanks said. “There’s really nothing else we can do.”
