Alekseyeun responded to the death on Instagram. “I am beyond myself and sad to just hear that my roomate Sarah died. I can’t believe this,” she wrote. “She was the most selfless person I knew. She was always kind and helpful to everyone. I haven’t spoken to her in years and never knew she was troubled.”
