After many days of searching, the body of the Princeton University student Misrach Ewunetie, who had been reported missing, was discovered on Thursday on the campus of the New Jersey school, according to officials.
The body of Ms Ewunetie was discovered on the grounds of the Facilities building on Thursday at one o’clock in the afternoon by an employee of the Facilities building, according to a statement issued by the Mercer County Prosecutor’s office.
The statement went on to say that the cause of Ms Ewunetie’s death and the circumstances surrounding it would be determined by an autopsy performed by the Middlesex County Medical Examiner’s Office. “However, there was no evident evidence of injuries, and the nature of her death did not appear to be criminal or suspicious in any way.”
Officials said that Ewunetie, who is 20 years old, was last seen on October 14 at about 3 a.m. According to her relatives, she went back to her house after giving her time to an event hosted by the Princeton Terrace Club on Thursday.
According to ABC News, a roommate claimed to have seen Ewunetie brushing her teeth at approximately 3 a.m. on Friday morning, but another roommate stated that Ewunetie wasn’t at home an hour and a half later.
Her brother was surprised when the location of her phone was tracked to an off-campus apartment that was approximately a half-walk hour from her dormitory.
“Princeton is a vast school, and it’s quite insular, so it’s very weird that her phone would be off-campus,” Universe Ewunetie said in an interview that aired on Thursday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” The interview was conducted by Universe Ewunetie. “Like, everything you could possibly need is on campus.”
The search efforts being conducted by Princeton University were revealed on Monday via Twitter. The university stated that Ewunetie “is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 130 pounds.” Her eyes are brown, her hair is black, and her complexion is light brown.”
Following this, the institution boosted the number of law enforcement officers present on and around its campus, “including the use of a helicopter, drones, and watercraft,” as the article puts it.

Earlier on Thursday, Governor Phil Murphy stated that he was praying for Ewunetie’s safe return and that he was keeping a close eye on the situation. As the evening progressed, he became “heartbroken” at learning of her passing away.
On Twitter, he expressed his condolences to “her family, friends, and other students who knew and loved her.” “Our hearts go out to her family, friends, and fellow students,” he added.
Ewunetie, who was born and raised in Ohio, was on schedule to complete her education in 2024. She graduated as the top student at Villa Angela-St. Joseph High School in Cleveland and was receiving a full scholarship to attend Princeton University.
W. Rochelle Calhoun, the Vice President of Princeton University, said in a statement that “the death of Misrach is an unspeakable tragedy.” “Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, her friends, and the many others who knew and loved her,” said one of the speakers.
Additionally, Calhoun mentioned that the institution was organising “an opportunity for students to come together and memorialise Misrach.” In addition to this, the school provided expanded counselling support for the students.
This is not the first time that a student from Princeton has passed away on campus in 2018. In May, the body of Jazz Chang, who was 21 years old, was discovered in a lake on campus. The cause of death of Chang was not published, but there was no reason to assume foul play in his passing.
A student named Justin Lim, who was only 19 years old, passed away at his home in Chicago just a few days afterwards. According to the university, Lim “had his life taken away by mental illness.”
A female employee at Princeton University who was only known to be 31 years old passed away on campus in September after committing suicide.
