Syracuse University Track Star Found Dead In NYC Hotel

The mysterious death of a Syracuse University track star has investigators and relatives searching for answers.

On Friday, Sabrina Cammock, 21, enjoyed a night out with her friends before returning to the Edison Hotel in New York City, where they were staying for spring break. Cammock, a resident of Queens, NY, went to sleep but never woke up, the New York Daily News reports.

“They all went to sleep,” said a source, “and when they woke up, she didn’t wake up.”

Cammock’s body was found in her bed. According to, the college senior’s body showed no signs of trauma and no drugs were found in the room. Investigators do not suspect foul play. An autopsy was performed by the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office on Sunday, but the results were inconclusive.

“Further tests are pending to determine the cause and manner of death,” said Julie Bolcer, a spokeswoman for the New York City Medical Examiner. “The death is still under investigation.”

The results from those tests will not be available for at least a couple of weeks. As to be expected, her relatives are stunned by her passing.

“She’s better than anybody you know,” said Cammock’s cousin Kemal Brown, 34. “She’s a baby and she’s gone.”

“I’ve never seen anything like this around me before,” he said.

Cammock was studying public health at Syracuse’s David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics.

“Sabrina was a wonderful and remarkable person and student-athlete,” Cammock’s track coach Chris Fox said in a statement.

We send our prayers to the Cammock family as well as the Syracuse University student body.
