On Sunday, Nov. 17 at 8:27 p.m., the University of Iowa department of public
safety responded to a call from Hillcrest Residence Hall, where they found
Karen Louise Brock in her top bunk and unresponsive. Johnson County Ambulance
personnel, who had also been summoned to the scene, arrived and determined
that Brock was deceased.
The Johnson County medical examiner was notified and responded to the scene.
Foul play is not suspected; however, the exact cause of death is unknown and
will be determined later by the medical examiner.
