Georgia Southern Student’s Death Still Mystery

| September 16, 2014

GSU_EntranceSTATESBORO — Police in Statesboro have nothing new to report on the mysterious death of Georgia Southern student Brooke Edwards.

From media reports, the police said Tuesday that they have not yet determined what killed Edwards late last week.

WSB in Atlanta reported that 18-year-old Edwards was found unresponsive in her off-campus apartment Friday, and was later pronounced dead.  She was a sophomore biology student, according to the university.

A candlelight vigil was held in the teen’s memory Monday night at the university.

“We are awaiting autopsy and toxicology results from the GBI Medical Examiner and Crime Lab,” Statesboro police Cpl. Justin Samples told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Edwards, a 2013 graduate of North Forsyth High School, was the second Georgia Southern student from Forsyth County to die in Statesboro in recent weeks.  Michael Gatto, an 18-year-old graduate of South Forsyth High School, died late last month after being badly beaten and left unconscious outside a Statesboro bar.  Grant James Spencer, 20, has been charged with felony murder in connection with Gatto’s death.
