UW students mourn the loss of Carly Henley

October 7th, 2010 · No Comments

The woman found dead outside a UW frat house has now been identified as 20 year old Carly Henley.  The medical examiner says she committed suicide.  Henley was an aspiring singer, a graduate of Highline High School, and a member of Delta Gamma sorority at the UW.  This afternoon, the university sent out this email:

This is a heart-wrenching experience for all of us, and our sincere condolences go out to her family and friends. There is precious little solace to be found at a difficult time like this. It is a terrible loss, and we know members of our UW community have come together to support each other. We hope you will all continue to do so.

Henley recorded some of her music and posted it on YouTube.  A candlelight vigil will be held for Henley on Friday from 8pm to 10 pm at Tau Kappa Epsilon, 4520 21st Avenue NE.
