Police say there were no signs of criminality when Cammock, 21, was found at around 9:20 a.m. Saturday at the Hotel Edison.

Medical examiners’ spokeswoman Julie Bolcer said an autopsy was conducted Sunday, but the results were awaiting further studies.

Cammock, a sprinter for Syracuse University, competed as recently as the previous weekend, when she was on the women’s 4×400 relay team at the 2015 ACC Indoor Championships.

“Sabrina was a wonderful and remarkable person and student-athlete,” Syracuse track and field coach Chris Fox said in a statement Saturday. “Our team and coaching staff are devastated by her loss.”

A member of a school record-setting 4×100-meter relay team, Cammock won a Syracuse scholar-athlete of the week award last April and was also was named to the 2012-13 Big East conference All-Academic Team.

A police source told the New York Daily News: 'They all went to sleep, and when they woke up, she didn’t wake up.'

It was also reported that no drugs were found in the room and there were no signs of trauma on her body.  

Cammock was in her senior year studying public health at Syracuse’s David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics, according to her college website.

On the track she dominated the 60-meter to 400-meter sprints and was part of a team of runners who broke her school’s 4x100-meter relay record last year.

Her cousin Kemal Brown, 34, told the Daily News: 'She’s better than anybody you know. She’s a baby and she's gone. I’ve never seen anything like this around me before.' 

Syracuse University head coach Chris Fox released a statement Saturday saying: 'Sabrina was a wonderful and remarkable person and student athlete.

Don't like to assume/speculate when it comes to someone dying but if no signs of trauma,no drugs,no history of illness, for someone to go to sleep and not wake up, sounds like most likely a heart attack, diabetes or maybe they had been drinking. Just thinking whatever the cause it's so sad. All I know, is God had plans for his special angel and he called her home as he needed her! RIP!

Sabrina Cammock, a senior at SU, was on spring break with friends when she died. Cammock and her friends went out Friday night, then returned to their room at the Edison Hotel, 228 W. 47th St., and went to sleep, according to theNew York Daily News. Cammock, a senior track star, never woke up. She was 21.

With no signs of trauma on Cammock's body and no drugs found in the hotel room, police told news reporters they were waiting for autopsy results. The New York City medical examiner's office performed an autopsy Sunday, but the results were inconclusive.

@ nadidia, I am also a bit suspicious since 21 year old athletes who are in tip-top shape, don't just drop dead...still, we will have to wait and see what the autopsy says....may she rest in peace.
