Police have identified the woman whose body was found on the subway tracks at the Canal Street station over the weekend as a 22-year-old theater student.
Emily Singleton, a Pennsylvania native who was living in Park Slope, appeared to have died from a fall onto the tracks and was not hit by a train, the New York Post reports.
The young woman was spotted at McKenna’s Pub in Chelsea early Sunday morning. She was later seen entering a subway station at 14th Street and Seventh Avenue. She was found Sunday afternoon covered in soot in between the tracks on the southbound side of the 1 train at the Canal Street station.
Police believe she had been drinking and fell off the subway platform, fatally hitting her head.
Singleton was a recent graduate of Bucknell University who moved to New York to pursue a theater career, the Post reports.
