LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A University of Louisville cheerleader has been found dead in an apartment near campus.

The university said the body of 22-year-old Danielle Cogswell was found Monday in an apartment at Cardinal Towne, an off-campus, privately operated student housing complex affiliated with U of L.

Louisville police spokesman Dwight Mitchell said the death did not appear to be the result of foul play.

The Courier-Journal reported that law enforcement officials have said they are awaiting results of an autopsy and toxicology tests.

The newspaper said Cogswell was a transfer student from Arizona State who grew up in Washington and had been a cheerleader at U of L for a year.

U of L's head spirit coach, Todd Sharp, said he recruited her to Louisville and described her as "one of the top athletes" in the program.
