COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Officials are calling the sudden death of a 17-year-old Columbus girl a “mystery.”   

Muscogee County Coroner Buddy Bryan says Annie Holland died Friday after staying home from school, complaining of cramps and vomiting.

Bryan says the teen died of unknown causes, adding that there was no foul play involved.

Holland was a senior at Columbus High School.

On Monday, grieving students and her family gathered outside the school to share memories of the teen. They also set up a makeshift memorial of flowers and candles in her parking space.

Bryan says Holland’s body has been sent to Atlanta for an autopsy and toxicology testing.

Columbus High School Principal Dr. Marvin Crumbs released a statement on Tuesday, saying: 

The Columbus High School family is deeply saddened by Annie’s death. She was a very smart, caring and extremely good human being.  Her teachers and her peers thought the world of her. She will truly be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Holland family.

Holland's memorial service will be on Wednesday, Dec. 7 at 6 p.m. at Evangel Temple in Columbus.
