WESTWOOD, LOS ANGELES - The 26-year-old female UCLA student who was found dead in campus housing last week has been identified.

The coroner's office identified the student as Paulina Tylka.

Tylka was found dead last Wednesday evening in the 11000 block of Weyburn Avenue in Westwood. Firefighters had responded to a medical call at the location.



UCLA media relations released a statement regarding the student's death.

"There are no signs of suicide, no signs of foul play. The coroner is investigating," it said, in part.

The statement went on to say that no further information would be released pending notification of next of kin.

The coroner's office released the student's identity last Friday.
