AUBURN, AL (WSFA) -

Auburn Police are investigating the death of 20-year-old Auburn University student, Cassandra Anne Gacek of Mobile, AL.

On Thursday evening, Gacek was found unresponsive in her Toomer Street apartment by a friend who then called 911. Auburn Police and EMS responded to the scene and found Gacek, with no signs of life. Chief Deputy Coroner Gene Manning pronounced Gacek dead at the scene at 8:15 p.m.

Gacek is said to have a past medical history of seizures. Authorities do not believe that foul play, alcohol or other substances are a factor in her death.

Gacek's body has been taken to the medical examiner's office at the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences for a postmortem examination. The Auburn Police, Lee County Coroner, and Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences are continuing the investigation.
