An Indiana University student was found dead in a sorority house, a death the university says does not involve foul play.
 
IU spokesman Mark Land says Kelly Ann Hackendahl, 20, was found unresponsive at the Zeta Tau Alpha house in the 1000 block of North Jordan Avenue just before 8:00pm Thursday - she was a member of the sorority.  Attempts to revive Hackendahl went on for almost an hour, but they were unsuccessful.  "The precise cause of death is still being investigated but foul play is not suspected," read a statement from Land.
 
Hackendahl was about to begin her junior year at IU and was a native of Libertyville, Illinois.  She was an education major.  "Personnel from IU Counseling and Psychological Services are available to assist members of the sorority and anyone else affected by this tragic event, and the university asks that the media and other members of the public respect our students’ privacy to the greatest extent possible during this difficult time," said the statement from Land.
