AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

An Auburn University student has died, says Lee County Coroner Bill Harris.  

Cassandra Anne Gacek, 20, was found by a friend in her Toomer Street apartment Thursday night at about 7:14 p.m.

Medical examiners found Gacek with no signs of life upon arrival, and she was pronounced dead at the scene at 8:15 p.m. by Chief Deputy Coroner Gene Manning.

Foul play, alcohol and other substances are not suspected to be a factor in her death.  Authorities report that Gacek had a past medical history of seizures.

Her body was taken to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences medical examiner's office in Montgomery for a postmortem examination to determine the cause of death.

Gacek was from Mobile, Alabama.

The Auburn Police, Lee County Coroner, and Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences are continuing the investigation.
