Many questions remain over the mysterious death of a 22-year old Stanford Women's soccer player who was found dead in her campus residence.

Katie Meyer, Stanford women’s soccer captain and senior majoring in international relations, is being remembered by teammates and coaches as "extraordinarily committed" and "larger than life" "in all of her pursuits." Meyer made two key saves in a penalty shootout to help Stanford win the national championship in 2019, the video of her save going viral at the time of the win against North Carolina.

The team gathered on Ueland Field the day her death was announced, many of the players emotional as they embraced and comforted one another. As of now, the University is not announcing Meyer’s cause or circumstances surrounding her death - they have since released a statement on her passing.

"There are no words to express the deep sadness we feel about Katie Meyer's passing," Stanford athletic director Bernard Muir said in a statement. "Katie was an outstanding student-athlete and a beloved, passionate leader here at Stanford. Our entire athletics community is heartbroken and Katie will be deeply missed."
