University of Tennessee Sorority Member Sydney Sloan Found Dead in Apartment

A University of Tennessee Sorority member was found dead inside her apartment Wednesday afternoon, CBS 8 reports.

Roommates reportedly found Sydney Sloan, 22, dead in her bathtub after noticing water leaking from the upstairs bathroom.

Sloan was a member of Sigma Kappa Sorority and audiology major at the university.

Sheriff’s Lt. Mark Webber told The Associate Press an autopsy was being performed and a toxicology screening has been requested to determine if Sloan was under the influence of any substance.

CBS 8 reports there will be a candlelight vigil for Sloan on Friday at 8:00 p.m. at Circle Park on the university’s campus.

    It doesn’t take rocket science to figure out what happened. Anybody remember Whitney Crackhead Houston. Obviously drugs had something to do with it.

  • rest in peace Sydney

    You may suspect whatever you want, but please keep your disrespectful thoughts to yourself as Sydney was loved by many and it’s always sad to see a young life end so tragically.

    • Stacey

      true, but why such a life had to end so early. Some are just questioning the possible reasons behind the death.

    I am Sydney Sloans younger sister, Madison. Do you have any genuine questions or would you rather just continue slandering my family’s name with things you know nothing about? Please, ask away…

  • Dani

    Hi Madison,

    I am so, so sorry for your loss and your family’s loss. I saw Sydney’s facebook page through a friend. She was obviously a very special person/sister/daughter/friend and my heart aches for you and your parents and your family. I am also sorry you have to deal with idiots speculating on website like this. I hope you will always treasure memories of your sister and know that she is watching over you…

    The title of this article is misleading and inappropriate – it should not be labelled “Suicide” but simply “Found dead” as you do with other articles. You even mention in your article that “screening has been requested to determine if Sloan was under the influence of any substance.”.

    So please out of respect don’t associate this person’s death to suicide if we don’t have any clue! If the person was under substance is another thing, but doesn’t mean suicide!
