Crown Point High School graduate dies in apartment near Indiana University

CROWN POINT — A 20-year-old Crown Point woman died unexpectedly Tuesday at her apartment near the campus of Indiana University in Bloomington.

Central Indiana media reports indicate foul play or self-harm are not suspected in the death of Mia Roy.

An autopsy to determine the cause of Roy's death is scheduled for Thursday at the Monroe County coroner's office, according to WTHR-TV.

Roy was a 2020 graduate of Crown Point High School and a student at Indiana University. She worked at the Olive Garden restaurants in Merrillville and Bloomington.

Her family said in an obituary in The Times: "Mia loved life and she will be deeply missed by all who knew her."
