Missing Princeton University student Misrach Ewunetie found dead on campus

A Princeton University student who was reported missing over the weekend from the Ivy League school in New Jersey was found dead on campus Thursday, the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office said.

Misrach Ewunetie, 20, was found by an employee at about 1 p.m. behind tennis courts on campus, according to authorities. While there were “no obvious signs of injury” and her death did not “appear suspicious or criminal in nature,” an autopsy will be done to determine her cause of death, the prosecutor’s office said.

Ewunetie was reported missing on Sunday after she was last seen heading to her dorm room on campus at about 3 a.m. on Oct. 14 — the last day of classes before the campus’s one-week fall break, according to university officials. However, when her roommate returned to the dorm at about 4 a.m., Ewunetie was not there.
