WAKE COUNTY, NC (WITN) - The death of an East Carolina University student is being investigated as a homicide.
The body of Annalisa Schulze was recovered from Falls Lake in Wake County Tuesday evening.
Deputies say a group of men riding four-wheelers thought they saw someone swimming in the water, but after taking a closer look they realized the woman was floating in the water.
The 19-year-old Wake Forest woman's body has been sent to the State Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy. Deputies say they are treating the death as a homicide until there is proof otherwise.
A nearby camp was found, but deputies are not sure if it is related to the woman's body.
ECU says Schulze was a sociology major and was registered for the upcoming fall term.
