FOUNTAIN CITY, Wis. (AP) — Winona State University is planning a candlelight vigil for a student found dead at a restaurant where she worked.

The gathering Wednesday at 8 p.m. will take place at the alumni gazebo in the center of the Winona, Minnesota campus. The university says students, friends and others wishing to pay their respects to Brook Baures are welcome.

The 21-year-old student from Chetek was a senior majoring in social work and was a member of the university’s gymnastics team. Her coach Beckie Rolbiecki says there is shock and disbelief that such a vibrant young woman has lost her life so early.

Baures’ body was found in a dumbwaiter at the WingDam Saloon and Grill in Fountain City Monday night. Police are investigating.
