COMPILED FROM STAFF AND MEDIA REPORTS
NEAR MARTINDALE — Authorities are investigating the death of a 20-year-old Texas State University student whose body was found this weekend beneath a shuttle bus at a popular concert and water recreation venue on the San Marcos River.
Jordin Taylor, a freshman from Burleson, was found dead beneath a shuttle bus Saturday afternoon at Cool River Ranch at 601 Dupuy Ranch Road, Guadalupe County Sheriff Arnold Zwicke told KEYE News, the Austin area CBS network affiliate.
Investigators believe Taylor’s body was struck by the bus and dragged more than 500 feet, the sheriff said. The death appears to have been the result of an accident, he said.
“The bus had developed mechanical problems the night before. When they went back on Saturday to fix it, they found the body,” Zwicke told the Fort Worth Star Telegram.
Taylor, a member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority, was seeking a bachelor’s degree in respiratory care, a university spokesperson said.
