A US national reportedly overdosed on pills yesterday in San Pedro. According to reports 46-year-old Susan Ruth Kaup who was a medical student was found in an apartment on the island. We understand when Police went to the apartment they saw a doctor trying to resuscitate Kaup who had taken a large number of pills. The woman reportedly called her father in the US to tell him what she was about to do. He in turn called a doctor to check on her but when he got to the apartment it was apparently too late. Kaup was taken to the Poly Clinic where efforts continued to revive her however they proved futile as she died shortly after. Police say they do not suspect foul play.

Tragic Death of Washington University Medical Student in San Pedro

Press Release, Washington University of Health and Science, San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye, Belize, Wednesday, May 28, 2014 - It saddens the administration, instructors, students, and staff of Washington University of Health and Science in announcing the sudden passing and loss of newly accepted medical student Suzanna Kaup on Tuesday. As a new first semester student to the medical university, Ms. Kaup began matriculating within the San Pedro, Ambergris Caye campus on May 12, 2014.

The U.S. Information Office of Washington University of Health and Science was contacted early Tuesday afternoon by a family member of Ms. Kaup indicating concern of her well-being, requesting assistance from the university to check-in on her. A medical doctor/instructor along with an administrative assistant of WUHS immediately went to her San Pedro residence where they received no response. Family members provided information which permitted authorities to enter her apartment. Upon entering the apartment, Ms. Kaup was located and immediate medical attention including CPR was administered by the physician in attendance.

Ms. Kaup was then transported to the local Poly-Clinic where she could be properly and medically attended to. A representative of Washington University of Health and Science was contacted later that evening by the senior physician of the Poly-Clinic indicating that Ms. Kaup had expired. Authorities indicated that her remains would be transported Tuesday evening to Belize City where she would be examined by the medical examiner and an autopsy would be performed. At the time of this release, WUHS has not been provided with the medical examiner/autopsy report.

Washington University of Health and Science immediately communicated with Suzanna's family within the United States and provided the contact information for the representative of the U.S. Embassy who will communicate further the proper procedures protocol by which the family will follow with respect to this matter.

The medical university sincerely requests that full cooperation, respect and support be provided to family and friends of Ms. Kaup during their time of sorry and loss.
