She was a VERY smart young lady and had a great head on her shoulders. Without a doubt, I believe foul play was involved whether she was approached by someone when she was under the bridge. I still cannot believe this happened to such a bright young lady with her whole life ahead of her.

I am appalled how the people that have made rude comments on here could do such a thing. One day this could be one of your family members or friends. What goes around comes around. Shame on YOU!

To all who post, please just be respectful of all the students we have lost in the past few months. Theses deaths are tragedies and not a reflection of Iowa State, people in the wrong place at the wrong time. None of you it seems are Iowa State Students, I am, and I am appalled by the disrespect you show. The students, families, faculty and staff of Iowa State have lost numerous students in the past few months and are grieving for our students.

Have some compassion. Regardless of how these people have died, they are gone. Have some respect for them and their grieving families.

I can't believe I have read some of the comments posted. You people are such cold hearted, disrespectful, and just downright mean spirited people. You should be careful of what you say, tomorrow it could be you , your family member,friend, etc. I don't wish anything bad to happen to anybody or to anyone close to them but I do hope something comes back and bites you in the ass for saying such things during a tragedy like this. My sympathy goes out to the girls family and anyone close to her and you may you find the answers to what happened. What a sad day plus with the other students ISU has lost, so terrible.

"Another One"...I hope you go to HELL you insensitve prick! Come live in my famiy's world and tell us to our faces you don't feel sorry for us and this tragedy that we are trying to grasp. Raven was a beautiful, young, intelligent lady who had an amazing life ahead of her. You are absolutely pathetic and I hope to GOD you did not procreate because if you did...I DO FEEL SORRY FOR YOUR KIDS to have a parent like you! I wish a tragedy on you and your family you asshole. For anyome else that feels the need to be ignorant and hurtful, say it in your house or to a friend, NOT where my family can read it for God's sake..........

Please....think before you write - the family and friends may be reading this

Guide yourself with the simple question - what if it were my family?

To Raven's family, I'm so sorry for your great loss, this is unbelievable. My heart goes out to her little brother, and if you need anything, or any help with anything don't hesitate to ask. This world has lost a beuatiful young lady inside and out, and I'll miss seeing her around, God Bless her and all her friends and her amazing family.

I flagged all of the crap posts above. Hopefully they will be taken down.

Sorry for the family, I dont know what she was doing on the train tracks though since she was under them to begin with......seems fishy.

I am so sorry for the loss of someones child and/or friend. I am a mom, w children that enjoy the company of friends and actually party in Ames now and then. God forbid I ever got that dreaded phone call! The unaswered ?'s has to be awful too...I too have lost a good friend w unexplained circumstances, will I ever know, I hope so but right now the friends and family need to grieve and know they have our prayers and thoughts not our nasty judgemental remarks! I embrace you and will send and extra prayer for you and your beloved.

This is every parents nightmare. Hopefully Ames Police will have enough common sense to see through that story the guy gave you. My sympathies for the family.

I feel for the family of this young lady. That said this just goes to show that the drinking age shouldn't be lowered under 21. In fact, we need to go back to prohibition. That is what I think of alcoholic beverages.
