The UNT custodian and graduate student who was found unconscious on campus last week has been identified as Margaret R. King, according to a UNT press release.

King, 67, was from Haltom City and was a graduate student in interdisciplinary studies, according to the release. She had two other master’s degrees from UNT in information science and computer education.

King had worked for UNT as a custodian since June 2016.

Update 1:55 p.m.

A 67-year-old UNT custodian and graduate student was found unconscious Thursday night in a parking lot on campus. The person was taken to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital and later pronounced dead.

A passerby found the student in Lot 26, a parking lot near Bain Hall, and notified police around 10 p.m. UNT spokesperson Julie Payne said they appeared to have died from natural causes.

“We are looking at this as a tragic situation,” Payne said.

UNT police officer Kevin Crawford said this is an open investigation.
