WINONA, Minn. (AP) — St. Mary’s University says the death of a 19-year-old freshman was due to natural causes.
Millie Harrison of Colorado Springs, Colo., died unexpectedly on Saturday. SMU says Harrison was a theater major studying stage management and communications. She was the production stage manager for one-act plays Saturday, which were canceled.
Several hundred students attended a prayer service Saturday night on campus.
The Winona Daily News reports SMU president Brother William Mann said it was “heartbreaking to see a young person, so filled with spirit,” taken so soon.
