COLUMBIA, South Carolina (CNN)-

A student found dead in her dormitory at a South Carolina college bled to death because of complications from childbirth, medical examiners reported Thursday.

Officials at Benedict College, a private, historically black institution in Columbia, identified the student as 19-year-old Ayaanah Gibson. She was about 32 weeks pregnant when she delivered a stillborn fetus late Saturday or early Sunday, the Richland County Coroner’s Office said.

Gibson’s body was found Tuesday. There was no indication of foul play in her death, the coroner’s office said.

“The Benedict College family is deeply saddened this evening about the unexpected loss of one of its students,” the school said in a written statement. “Please join the Benedict College family in praying for our fallen Tiger and her family.”
