MINNEAPOLIS — A teenager who died after falling from a sixth-floor window at a University of Minnesota dormitory is identified.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office said 19-year-old Stephanie Ann Lehr died of multiple blunt force injuries. She fell from the window into a courtyard at Yudof Hall about 4:30 p.m. Saturday. She died Sunday at 2 a.m. at Hennepin County Medical Center.

Police say Lehr was trying to reach a gravel rooftop about three feet away when she fell. Lehr was not a university student and her friend was the only other person in the room when she fell. Alcohol was found in the room, but police don’t know if Lehr had consumed any.
