BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- An Indiana University student was found dead Sunday night in her dorm, making her the second freshman student to die at IU since classes began this fall.
Officials with the Indiana University Police Department said Abigail Bott,18, died at her residence in the McNutt Quad dorm.
Bott, a freshman who had declared health fitness as her major, is from Clarendon Hills in Illinois. Her cause of death was not released pending toxicology results.
According to WLS-TV in Chicago, results are expected to take four to six weeks. Authorities say there was no sign of trauma, nor is foul play suspected.
Bott was a freshman who had declared health fitness as her major, the university said.
Numerous students commented on Twitter that they are praying for Bott and her family.
Police didn't release details on who found Bott's body, when she was last seen alive or what may have caused her death.
Bott is the second freshman student to die at IU this fall.
Rachael Fiege, 19, died in August after she fell down a flight of stairs near the football stadium between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m.
