Sam Wopat’s Cause of Death Will Not Be Revealed By Stanford

As we reported earlier this week, the death of Stanford University volleyball player Samantha (Sam) Wopat has shaken the campus, and the mystery surrounding Wopat’s cause of death has drawn a lot of interest.

19-year-old Wopat was admitted to a local hospital on March 17th after experiencing a medical emergency of unspecified origin at her university residence. She lingered on for eight days in the intensive care unit before she succumbed to whatever ailment originally claimed her. Since her death, Wopat’s cause of death has been a matter of great interest, likely in part because an athlete dying in her prime is very sad and unexpected.
