RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN/WNCT) — An ECU student found dead in Falls Lake in August drowned while presumably impaired by marijuana and LSD, according to an autopsy released Monday.

The medical examiner ruled the death of Annalisa Christine Schulze, 19, an accident.

Schulze’s body was found fully clothed in the lake after it was spotted by two men riding ATVs.

Schulze had planned to meet friends camp at the lake that weekend, and authorities found her campsite nearby, officials said.

Schulze attended ECU starting in the fall of 2016 and was enrolled at the university during the spring semester as well, the school confirmed. She was majoring in sociology.
