Rye H.S. grad found dead at Virginia college

A Rye High School graduate was found dead in her dorm room at James Madison University in Virginia.



Sources tell News 12 that Marisa Curlen, 20, died of apparent alcohol poisoning at the Harrisonburg, Virginia school. The sources say that Curlen, a second-year student who played on the volleyball team, was found dead between midnight and 8 a.m. Friday.



Curlen is the third graduate of Rye's 2013 class to die while in college. No foul play was suspected in the two other deaths.



James Madison University officials have yet to comment on the incident.



The family is still waiting on the medical examiner for the official cause of death. Sources say it does not look like foulplay was involved.
