By    |   Wednesday, 30 Jul 2014 08:22 AM

Dani Cogswell, a cheerleader for the University of Louisville, was found dead in an apartment complex near the university's campus Monday morning, but authorities do not suspect foul play.

Cogswell, 22, from Washington state, joined the school cheer squad last year after transferring from Arizona State University, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. Louisville police spokesman Dwight Mitchell told the newspaper that investigators are waiting for autopsy and toxicology test results on Cogswell before announcing a cause of death.

Cogswell reportedly posted a photo on Instagram at 3:52 p.m. on Sunday with two retweets on Twitter just after that.

"Based on all my interactions with her, I would have never imagined we'd lose her this young," Todd Sharp, Louisville's spirit coach, said at a news conference Tuesday, adding that the team was "absolutely devastated" by the death.

Danielle "Dani" Cogswell grew up in Sammamish, Washington, where she attended Skyline High School and was a member of a cheerleading squad that won the state championship in 2009, according to Seattle's KING-TV.

"We are deeply saddened by this tragic loss and our heartfelt sympathies, thoughts, and prayers are with Dani's family and friends during this difficult time," Tom Jurich, U of L's vice president and athletic director, said, according to KING-TV. "Our university is aiding our students and staff to provide counseling services to those who knew her."

Tributes and condolences from other cheerleading teams across the country were posted on social media after news of Cogswell's death spread.
