A woman fell to her death from a parking garage on the MU campus Wednesday afternoon.

MU Police Capt. Brian Weimer could not say why the woman fell, but said MU police were conducting an investigation into the death.

“Currently, there is no indication of foul play,” the MU Police Department said in a press release.

Weimer said Officer Brett Barnes was driving in the area and Barnes went to investigate after seeing people running toward the garage.

He arrived at about 1:25 p.m. and found the woman lying on the ground, but did not see her fall, Weimer said.

Police believe she fell from the northwest area of the Maryland Avenue parking garage, located near the corner of Maryland Avenue and Kentucky Boulevard.

She was taken to the Health Science Center, the MU Police Department said in a press release.

The woman’s name is not being released so that her family can be notified, and Weimer could not say whether the woman was affiliated with the university.

“There is nothing to indicate she was either a student, faculty or staff associated with the university,” Weimer said.
