A freshman has been found dead in her room at the University of Charleston-Beckley.
A woman who answered the telephone at the Beckley Police Department on Wednesday night referred inquiries to Bragg, who had gone home for the night.
WVVA and WOWK-TV both broadcast a statement from University of Charleston President Dr. Edwin Welch, who called the death "truly a heartbreaking situation." Welch said the university would comment further when more information is available.
