ALLENDALE, Mich. (AP) — Police investigating the death of a Grand Valley State University student whose body was found last week on campus are asking for the community’s patience as they await toxicology results.

Campus police said Thursday that a toxicology report on 18-year-old Taylor DeRosa may not be available until “well into the new year.”

DeRosa, a first-year student from the Detroit area, was found dead by a runner on Dec. 12 near sports fields on the Allendale campus.

School President Philomena Mantella said Tuesday that there is “much we do not know about the cause of her death.”
