Syracuse Women's Track Team Sprinter Found Dead in NYC Hotel: Police

A sprinter on Syracuse University women's track and field team was found dead Saturday in a Times Square hotel, police and university officials said.

Sabrina Cammock, a 21-year-old senior from Queens, was discovered unconscious at about 9:20 a.m. in a bed at the Edison Hotel on West 47th Street, police said.

Emergency Medical Services responders pronounced her dead at the scene.

There were no signs of trauma and the Medical Examiner's Office would be determining the cause of death, investigators said.

Cammock was a sprinter on the track team and majoring in public health, said university Dean of Student Affairs Rebecca Reed Kantrowitz.

"It is a painful time for our entire campus community whenever we are faced with a tragedy such as this," she wrote in a letter to students, faculty and staff. "We mourn as a campus community with all those whose lives Sabrina touched."

Spring break at the university officially began on Sunday. Classes resume on March 16.
