U of L cheerleader found dead in apartment
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A University of Louisville cheerleader has been found dead in an apartment near campus.
The university said the body of 22-year-old Danielle Cogswell was found Monday in an apartment at Cardinal Towne, an off-campus, privately operated student housing complex affiliated with U of L.
Louisville police spokesman Dwight Mitchell said the death did not appear to be the result of foul play.
The Courier-Journal reported that law enforcement officials have said they are awaiting results of an autopsy and toxicology tests.
The newspaper said Cogswell was a transfer student from Arizona State who grew up in Washington and had been a cheerleader at U of L for a year.
U of L's head spirit coach, Todd Sharp, said he recruited her to Louisville and described her as "one of the top athletes" in the program.
On Sunday morning at approximately 10:53, Deputy Bryan Hammons responded to West Elmwood Drive in Wax to investigate a golf cart crash, according to a Grayson County Sheriff’s Department press release. (MORE)
