UPDATE: September 6

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

Kelly Markatos was found dead in her apartment in Mt. Pleasant on August 27th.

Police say preliminary autopsy results show no indication of how she died.

Markatos' medical history has been provided by her family.

Police say they hope when toxicology results come back, it will shed some light on how she died. 

--------------------------------

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.

9 & 10's Meredith Barack and photojournalist Jeff Blakeman were at the scene today and spoke to neighbors and police.
