    Georgia Southern student, Brooke Edwards, 18, found dead in off campus apt

    http://www.walb.com/story/26534695/g...ent-found-dead

    Posting here because I'm not sure that there has been any crime committed. Sad, nonetheless.

    Another article. According to this, she was found "unresponsive" Friday, September 12th, and later pronounced dead. I can't find any details as to what may have happened.

    From this article: "Georgia Southern University (GSU) has confirmed the death of yet another student under unreleased circumstances."

    Unreleased circumstances--sounds like they have an idea, but we will have to wait. Thanks for starting the thread; I saw this on FB today.

    Still no specifics, however "no foul play suspected" and "no further details" will be released. I'll leave it open for interpretation. RIP Brooke. This is the second case involving a young college girl with this ending I've followed in the past few days. So, so sad.

    Well, the GBI was brought in on her case according to am750WSB radio in Atlanta. I believe this is the same school where a male student was found deceased inside wrestling mats at one of the school's gyms either earlier this year or in 2013. The DOJ is looking into the man's case.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    The only mention I can find of GBI is in relation to the toxicology/autopsy results, so I suppose this could shed new light.

    I think the gym mat death occurred at Valdosta State University. Both losses are very sad.
