University student found dead in River Falls dorm



MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A student at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls has been found dead in her dorm room.


The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that a fellow student found the woman's body this morning in Prucha Hall. Her name isn't being released until her family is notified.

A school official says the circumstances of the woman's death are unknown and River Falls police are investigating.

Within the last week, two 19-year-old female students have died in Winona, Minn. The death of a St. Mary's University student was due to natural causes and a Winona State University student's death does not appear to be suspicious.

A 23-year-old University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee student also died in recent days, after falling down stairs at a party.
