The death of a woman whose body was discovered early Monday on the University of Louisiana Monroe campus has been ruled a suicide, according to President Nick J. Bruno.

Bruno was informed by ULM Police Chief Tom Torregrossa of the official cause of death on Wednesday afternoon.

“The unexpected loss of a life is a tragedy and ULM offers its condolences to the family,” stated Bruno. “Although she was not a student, she was a fellow human being and our sympathies are heartfelt.”
