VCU student death in Louisa under investigation

LOUISA, VA (WWBT) - Louisa detectives are not ready to call the suspicious death of a Richmond woman a homicide.

Kristan Charlene Fox, 26, was found unresponsive behind a restaurant in Louisa on Dec. 30, but she apparently had no ties to the area.

According to several local newspapers, two male friends took Fox to a hospital in Charlottesville. They told emergency room workers that she called one of them for help, so they went to pick her up -- and found her lying behind the McDonald's on James Madison highway, just off the Zion Crossroads exit on Interstate 64.

Fox was placed on life support, but died the next day. Now authorities are looking to clear up several things, including exactly how she died and her relationship to the two men who took her to the hospital.

Fox was a student in the Ph.D. program in Public Policy and Administration, in the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs, Virginia Commonwealth University. She first enrolled in the program in the Fall of 2006 and was continuously enrolled since, according to a VCU official.  

No charges have been filed in this case. If you have information you are asked to contact the Louisa county sheriff's department at 540-967-1234.
