A Towson University graduate student was found dead inside an off-campus apartment on Friday afternoon, Baltimore County police said.
The student, identified as Darcie Lena Moloshok, 28, was found after her mother called the university concerned about her welfare, police said.
Officers from the Towson University Police Department reported to the scene to check on the student. The officers were let into the apartment, located in the 300 block of Stevenson Lane, by maintenance staff. They found Moloshok lying on her bed, police said.
Baltimore County Police said they responded to a report of cardiac arrest.
Baltimore County Fire Department paramedics declared Moloshok dead at the scene. Her body was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine the cause and manner of her death, according to police.
Police said that “suspected heroin” was found in the apartment, and that this incident is classified as a sudden death.
“We were saddened to learn [Saturday] of the death of a Towson University graduate student,” TU director of communications and media relations Ray Feldmann said to the Baltimore Sun. “We are communicating with the student’s family and offering them our full support.”
