EDINBURG — A woman’s body was found near an outdoor staircase early Monday near a University of Texas-Pan American campus building.
Construction workers found the body, and the building will remain closed until at least noon today as the investigation into the “suspicious” death continues.
University officials say Edinburg police and Texas Rangers are assisting campus police with their investigation. Identification of the woman is pending.
The body was found shortly before 8 a.m. Monday. No cause of death has been released.
The science building near where the body was found was evacuated, and classes in that building were canceled for the day.
Students, faculty and staff received campuswide alerts to avoid the area.
However, officials say there was no imminent danger to the community.
UTPA is located in Edinburg, about 50 miles northwest of Brownsville.
