Police tell 9&10 News they still aren't sure what caused the death of a 22-year-old Central Michigan University student.

Markatos' medical history has been provided by her family.

A CMU student found dead; her roommates discovered her body this morning at their apartment.

Police say the 22-year-old's death is not suspicious, and they are ruling out any criminal activity. They do not believe alcohol or drugs are a factor in her death.

Still, they can't say with certainty why she died.

Police still haven't released a name, but classmates identify her as Kelly Markatos from Holland.

A next door neighbor says he frequently saw her coming and going like everyone else in the apartment complex.
