Students at Syracuse University are mourning the loss of their fellow student and track star Sabrina Cammock. Cammock, who was on Spring Break in New York City, was found dead in her hotel room over the weekend.
“They all went to sleep,” a source said, “and when they woke up, she didn’t wake up.”
The 21-year-old senior’s family is in shock over Cammock’s death.
“She’s better than anybody you know,” Cammock’s cousin Kemal Brown, 34, said quietly as he stood in a daze outside of the young woman’s home in Jamaica Estates. “She’s a baby and she’s gone.”
“I’ve never seen anything like this around me before,” he said.
According to police, there were no signs of trauma and no drugs were found in the room. They won’t know the cause of death until an autopsy is performed.
Cammock excelled in the 60-meter to 400-meter sprints and recently placed second in the 60-meter dash at the 2015 Upstate Challenge with a time of 7.62.
“Sabrina was a wonderful and remarkable person and student-athlete,” Syracuse track coach Chris Fox said in a statement.
