BREAKING: Student found dead in apartment
Written by Bwog Staff
A recent Columbia grad emailed Bwog with the following tip:
A Columbia student in her early 20’s was found dead in her apartment at 435 Riverside Drive, Apartment 22. The EMTs found her there — they got a call at 12:38 p.m. about a possible cardiac arrest — and said the place smelled awful and she’d probably been dead for a few days. They suspect suicide, but can’t be sure, as they found her dead on the floor and cause of death hasn’t been confirmed. The building’s security guard confirmed that the woman was a Columbia student.

UPDATE 1:25 PM: Bwog just got off the phone with Public Safety, who is not commenting. The have confirmed that there has been “a situation” at that address.
UPDATE 2:02 PM: More from our tipster: “The girl was apparently Italian and she was found by her roommate/subletting landlord.”
UPDATE 9:44 AM: More from our tipster: “Apparently, the student was subletting either the whole or part of the apt at 435 Riverside. The person she was subletting from came home after being gone for several days and found her lying dead on the floor of one of the back rooms, possibly her bedroom. According to this person, the girl had said she was extremely depressed the last time she was seen. Thus, the suspicion of suicide (which of course cannot be proved or disproved without an actual autopsy).”
