Central Washington University says the death of a student in a residence hall appears to be by natural causes.

A university spokeswoman says Madison Murphy was found unconscious Thursday night in Barto Hall and was later pronounced dead at an Ellensburg hospital.

Police are investigating but housing staff thought she died of natural causes.

The 19-year-old from Bonney Lake was a freshman.
