UPDATE: The death of Louisville cheerleader Danielle "Dani" Cogswell is being investigated as a possible drug overdose.
Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell announced that there are believed to be no witnesses and that toxicology results may not be available for 60 to 90 days.
The school’s athletic department heads told USA Today that cheerleaders are not subject to the school’s drug testing the way its student-athletes are, since cheerleading is not an NCAA-sanctioned sport.
USA Today reports that Cogswell was found dead on Monday morning in the Cardinal Towne apartment complex just outside campus.
The University of Louisville’s spirit team is "devastated" after cheerleader Danielle "Dani" Cogswell was found dead in her home.
No cause of death was announced pending autopsy and toxicology reports, but police don’t suspect foul play. The school would not say where the body was found or release any other details of the 22-year-old’s death.
"Based on all my interactions with her, I would have never imagined we’d lose her this young," Todd Sharp, Louisville’s head spirit coach, said at Tuesday’s press conference. He described his team as "absolutely devastated."
Sharp said there are plans for a campus memorial and to dedicate the upcoming season to her. Friends took to Cogswell’s social media accounts to post their condolences, using the hashtag #ripdani.
