NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - Alcohol is suspected of playing a role in the death of a Rutgers University student.

The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office says 19-year-old Caitlyn Kovacs of South Brunswick appeared to be in distress while attending a gathering at the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity house early Sunday.

Some friends took her to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, where she died.

Officials are awaiting results of an autopsy.
