On behalf of the Slippery Rock University community, I extend our deepest sympathy to the parents, other family members and friends of Laura Moore, who died Tuesday night.

Laura was a freshman who came to us as a graduate of Pittsburgh’s Schenley High School. She became a vibrant part of our campus community in her short time here. An exercise science major with a goal of becoming a physical therapist, Laura was a member of our Illusions Twirling Squad and quickly became a friend to many students.

Several of those friends are planning a campus memorial service in her honor. Details will be posted here as soon as we know them. We will also share with you any information we have about funeral arrangements in Pittsburgh.

Students who may be especially struggling with this tragedy are urged to call the University Counseling Center at 724-738-2034 to schedule a time to meet with a counselor.

Laura Moore, 18, was found by friends in her Harner Hall room, Tuesday at approximately 10 p.m.  The community assistant in the residence hall immediately summoned an ambulance and University Police who attempted to revive her. As common procedure, Pennsylvania State Police and the Butler County coroner were called to the scene and have been investigating. An autopsy was performed yesterday and determined there was no foul play involved in her death. A more complete report will be issued after toxicology test results are available, which normally takes seven to 10 days. Those with questions or concerns are invited to call University Public Relations at 724-738-2091.
