Foul play not suspected in IU student's death at sorority house

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Bloomington officials said police do not suspect foul play after an Indiana University student was found dead at a campus sorority house Thursday night.

IU police were called to the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority house on North Jordan Avenue just before 8 p.m.

An IU spokesman said Kelly Ann Hackendahl, 20, from Libertyville, Illinois, was unresponsive when police arrived at the sorority house.

Emergency responders tried to revive Hackendahl for an hour, but she was pronounced dead, the IU spokesman said. The cause of death was still being investigated, officials said Friday.

Hackendahl was beginning her junior year and working toward a degree in education.

IU said counseling services would be available for members of the sorority and anybody else affected by Hackendahl's death.
