Ole Miss student, 21, found dead at a lake & # 39; was shot eight times after coming home after midnight & # 39;
The Ole Miss student who was found dead at a lake 20 miles from her campus was reportedly shot eight times after coming home from a bar in the early hours.
Alexandria & # 39; Ally & # 39; Kostial, 21, was discovered by a police officer during a routine patrol on Saturday morning at Sardis Lake in Mississippi.
Now reports suggest that she could be seen on security images from the bar, stopping in the doorway before she walked away without going inside.
She went home around midnight, but it is understandable that she left her house again without her housemates hearing it, WLBT reports.
The new details have emerged after the Sheriff & Lafayette County Department said they suspected cheating in her death.
It is still unknown whether she was reported missing before her body was discovered.
A police spokesperson told DailyMail.com Monday: “On July 20, 2019, 1023 am, while on routine patrol in Harmontown, MS, Lafayette County Deputies found the body of a white woman who had died. It is clear that there was cheating.
& # 39; This is an active investigation, so no details are released. The Sheriff's Department and the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations are currently following different directions.
& # 39; We will release more information in due course. & # 39;
