Woman who died in fall from dorm window identified

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A teenager who died after falling from a sixth-floor window at a University of Minnesota dormitory is identified.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office says 19-year-old Stephanie Ann Lehr died of multiple blunt force injuries. She fell from the window into a courtyard at Yudof Hall about 4:30 p.m. Saturday. She died Sunday at 2 a.m. at Hennepin County Medical Center.

Police say Lehr was trying to reach a gravel rooftop about three feet away when she fell. Lehr was not a university student and her friend was the only other person in the room when she fell. The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/15bzmb8 ) reports alcohol was found in the room, but police don’t know if Lehr had consumed any.

Authorities say Lehr’s friend has been moved to another room.
