Officers responded to the scene at about 8am and found Bastien’s body outside.

University officials notified the Johns Hopkins’ community of Bastien’s death via email on Thursday afternoon, the Baltimore Sun reports.

‘On behalf of the entire Johns Hopkins community, we offer our deepest sympathies to Abby’s family and friends,’ the email read from vice provost of student affairs, Kevin G. Shollenberger, and senior associate dean of student life, Toni Blackwell.

Bastien had four other siblings, two sisters and two brothers.
