Evanston police say a Northwestern University junior died at St. Francis Hospital about 9 a.m. Sunday morning, nearly 24 hours after she’d been taken to the hospital by friends.

Police and university officials say the cause of death for Kenzie Krogh, a student in the School of Education and Social Policy from Durham, North Carolina, has not yet been determined.

An autopsy was scheduled to be conducted today.

Evanston Police Cmdr. Ryan Glew says the department is conducting a death investigation, as it typically would do in such situations.

NU officials are offering counseling options for students in need of support in the wake of the death.

Krogh, according to her Linkedin profile, had worked as a research and teaching assistant at NU’s Kellogg School of Management and was scheduled to intern this summer with the Deloitte consulting firm.

Update 5:20 a.m. 2/27/18: Cmdr. Glew says results of Monday’s autopsy are incomplete, pending toxicology tests that may take a month or more to complete.

He added that at this point there’s no indication of foul play in Krogh’s death.
