DuPage County sheriffs are investigating the death of a woman found at the University’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory Thursday morning. According to a Sheriff’s Office press release, there is no indication of foul play.

The woman was found at around 10:50 a.m. after employees investigated a noise in the laboratory’s main building. Paramedics pronounced the woman dead shortly after 11 a.m.

The Sheriff’s Office is withholding the name of the victim until it notifies her family. Its press release also did not identify what type of noise Fermi employees were responding to.

Fermi, in Batavia, Illinois, is jointly run by the University and the Department of Energy.
