Police treating U of L cheerleader's death as "suspected overdose"

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they are treating the recent death of a University of Louisville cheerleader as a "suspected overdose," according to a written statement distributed by a police spokesman.


Danielle Cogswell's body was discovered in an off-campus residence Monday morning. She was found in Cardinal Towne, a privately operated student housing complex affiliated with U of L.

Police say no foul play is suspected, and they are conducting this as a death investigation, but they are looking at the case as a suspected overdose. 

However, police caution, that determination will not be officially solidified until a toxicology report is completed by the Kentucky Medical Examiner -- a process that could take anywhere from 60 to 90 days.

Dani Cogswell, 22, was a member of the co-ed spirit team on campus and called her one of the "elite flyers".
