MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (WDTV) - A lecturer in the WVU English Department was found dead near a campus chapel Friday, officials confirmed.
Police say a staff member of Lutheran Campus Ministry found 34-year-old Elizabeth Ann Leo, of Morgantown, dead behind the chapel near the intersection of University Avenue and Hough Street around 7:30 a.m.
University officials said Leo was set to teach an online course this summer. She was not scheduled to teach in the fall.
"Our thoughts are with Elizabeth’s family during this difficult time, and our Carruth Center is available for students, faculty or staff as our campus community mourns her loss," said university spokesperson April Kaull.
A cause of death has not been released as investigators await results from the Medical Examiner's Office in Charleston.
