Authorities in Wisconsin are trying to figure exactly out how a female college student and star gymnast ended up dead in a food elevator, aka, dumb waiter, at a Fountain City bar and grill.

Brooke Baures, 21, a senior at Winona State University, was found dead at the WingDam Saloon and Grill in Fountain City at about 8 p.m., where she was an employee.

Jason Mork, the only police officer in the 859-person city, said the dumb waiter opening is about 3 feet by 3 feet, Fox 9 reported. The Winona Daily News reported that the elevator was not intended for employees to enter. h/t foxnews

There is a multi-agency investigation into the gymnast’s death and officials would not speculate on the cause of death until after an autopsy is completed.
