  1. So very heartbreaking, tragic for her family and the entire University. College campus should be safe no matter what time it is . Praying for her safe return and for strength for her family during such a difficult time ❤️????

  2. My understanding is that, as of this morning, the NJSP have asked the construction company employees, working on the University’s grounds, to assist in the search efforts. Praying someone finds something that will lead to the recovery of this young woman.

  3. It appears suspicious to me. She was out late until around 2:30 am helping with a school event. According to her brother a family member tracks her location on their phone and it stopped tracking and her signal was lost around 3:30 am. I think it is premature and unconscionable to state that a 20 year old college student missing and found dead on the college campus outside is “not suspicious” before the medical examiner determines the cause and manner of death. They appear to be framing a narrative in order to sweep this under the rug. All the news articles and stories are even running with this narrative without facts. I hope the family fights for their loved one.

  4. I happen to agree with you. It’s interesting because people working on campus had reported, to me yesterday, that she had actually been found in a boiler/facility building, not outside. Either way, finding a deceased 20 year old outside, dead, should 100% be looked into as being suspicious. I’m heartbroken for her family, and hope that they are able to find the truth in this situation. Sending prayers and positive thoughts to them in this time of deep sorrow.
