BECKLEY (WVVA) - Autopsy results are in for a young woman found dead in her UC-Beckley dorm room in January.

Police say Sheila "Coko" Hopkins died of an existing cardiac condition.

When investigators were initially called to the scene of her death nothing seemed suspicious, so foul play was ruled out early. No one had seen Hopkins for up to two days before her death.

Hopkins went to UC-Beckley to pursue her love of basketball. She graduated from Bluefield High School.
