Duquesne graduate student Cheyenne Warner, 22, from Slippery Rock, passed away over the weekend, confirmed Vice President of Student Life Douglas Frizzell in a campus-wide email. The cause of death is not yet known.
According to the email, Warner was a graduate student in the school of education. Senior physics major Ben Torisky, who knew Warner since his freshman year, said she wanted to be a high school physics teacher.
Emergency medical personnel pronounced Warner dead in her apartment on the 19th floor of Brottier Hall at 5:26 p.m., the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed. Her autopsy will be complete by Monday evening.
