COLUMBIA — MU political science freshman Carolyn Dolan, 19, was declared dead at 5:48 a.m. Sunday at a family member's home in Kirkwood, said Suzanne McCune of the St. Louis Medical Examiner's office.
Dave Smith, a spokesman for the Kirkwood Police Department, said there was nothing suspicious about Dolan's death but that it is being investigated as a possible suicide. A medical investigation is ongoing.
The Kirkwood Police Department notified the MU Police Department that Dolan had died after attending a rave, said Major Tom Reddin of the Boone County Sheriff's Department. Reddin said the MU police were told Dolan's death was not caused by an overdose.
Dolan is survived by her parents, Kevin and Vicki Dolan, and a sister, Erin Dolan.
