VALDOSTA, Ga. -- Valdosta State University Police say they are interviewing more than a dozen potential witness about the death of afreshman from Lawrenceville.

Investigators are awaiting autopsy results before making a final determination about the death of 17-year-oldJasmine Benjamin.

Authoritieshave already said they believe it was homicide.

But a commander with the Valdosta Police Department, Brian Childress, said police can't call the case a murder until they get a final autopsy report.

Officials say it could be several weeks before that report is available.

The aspiring nursing student was found unresponsive on a couch in a study room.

Authorities initially told Benjamin's parents she died of natural causes.
