As the Associated Press reports, a woman was found dead of unspecified causes in a campsite in the late hours of Thursday, June 9. Coffee County Sheriff Stephen M. Graves revealed that the body of the 32-year-old, who is from the Pittsburgh area, was found by her friends.
As of now, the victim's name has not been revealed while the police inform her family. An autopsy is pending. As the AP reports, the temperature on Thursday was 91 degrees, so heatstroke may be to blame.
This isn't the first time a fan has died at Bonnaroo. A man died of heat exhaustion in 2010, and a man's body was found by maintenance workers in 2009. In prior years, six other people passed away at the festival, including two from drugs and two from automobile-related accidents.
