Missing Princeton University student Misrach Ewunetie found dead on campus

A Princeton University student reported missing from New Jersey’s Ivy League school this weekend was found dead on campus Thursday, the Mercer County prosecutor’s office said.

Misrach Ewunetie, 20, was found around 1 p.m. by an employee behind campus tennis courts, according to authorities. While there were “no obvious signs of injury” and her death did not appear “suspicious or criminal in nature,” an autopsy will be performed to determine her cause of death, the prosecutor’s office said.

Ewunetie was reported missing on Sunday after she was last seen at about 3 a.m. on Oct. 14 when she went to her on-campus dorm — the last day of class before the week-long fall break, according to university officials. However, when her roommate returned to the dorm at about 4 a.m., Ewunetie was not there.
