Pictured above by Amanda Foresta: Twenty-year-old non-student Anna Marinier was found deceased at the Lewis University residence of Fitzpatrick Hall.
A non-student was reported deceased to the university police department on Sunday, Nov. 18.
The Romeoville Police Department, as well as the Will County Coroner, are still investigating and state that there is no threat to campus.
According to a university press release, the deceased was identified as 20-year-old Anna Marinier of Frankfort, Ill. Marinier was not a student at Lewis University, but was visiting Lewis student Jamie Olsen.
“As of today, Lewis University student Jamie Olsen has been arrested by the Romeoville Police on a felony charge of Obstruction of Justice,” said Chief of Lewis University Police James Montanari.
Montanari could not comment on exactly what Olsen did to be charged with Obstruction of Justice, but an article by the Romeoville Patch states that she “took steps to conceal her involvement.”
A university press release states that Olsen currently resides at Will County Adult Detention facility and is restricted from campus pending a University Judicial Hearing.
“Toxicology tests are still pending,” Montanari said. “The Romeoville Police have released information stating that Ms. Marinier died of an apparent overdose, possibly from heroin.”
Counseling is available on campus through University Health and Counseling Services (815) 836-5455. The Lewis University community expresses its prayerful sympathy to all who are touched by this tragedy, especially family and friends.
