WINONA LAKE — A Grace College student found dead on campus on Friday, Oct. 30, is not believed to have died from foul play.
That’s according to Associate Vice President and Dean of Student Affairs Aaron Crabtree. He spoke to InkFreeNews after a prayer service the school had on Friday.
Bethany Nesbitt, 20, was found dead in her residence hall, Westminster, about 10 a.m. No other details about her death have been released as of late Friday afternoon.
Kosciusko County Coroner Tony Ciriello said an autopsy is to be performed Monday.
In a press release, the college further stated that “While we await answers on the cause of her death, there is no reason to suspect foul play or self-harm.”
The college said Nesbitt was studying psychology and set to graduate in May.
According to her Facebook page, she was from Grand Ledge, Mich.
She had eight older siblings. Her future plans according to the college were “to become a child life specialist working with ill and disabled children in a hospital setting.”
Crabtree said among the prayer service speakers were Associate Dean of the School of Ministry Studies Tiberius Rata and Dean of Undergraduate Chapel and Community Life Brent Mencarelli.
According to the college, counseling services have been made available to students.
