Police are investigating the death of 19-year-old Rutgers University student Caitlyn Kovacs, who was pronounced dead in the hospital less than 20 minutes after friends carried her out of a frat house "in distress" at 3 a.m. on Sunday. The hospital thinks her death "may have been alcohol-related."

The Daily Targum, the student paper, reported that Kovacs "passed out" in the Delta Kappa Epsilon house. DKE headquarters says the chapter is cooperating with authorities. The Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office told NJ.com it did not intend to file charges related to the incident.

Kovacs was a sophomore majoring in animal sciences, who was "bubbly" and "happy" according to her friends. Rutgers has made grief counselors available to students in the wake of her death.
