“An autopsy completed this morning is pending additional testing,” Gay said on Twitter..

Spring Garden Township Police continue to investigate, she said.

Gay stated that her office was confirming Williamson’s identity because “some persons already have that information.” She added that Williamson is not from the York area.

Williamson’s death marked the second on-campus student death at York College this year, reports EveningSun.
