Pitt student dies while in Spain for internship

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A University of Pittsburgh student has died while studying abroad in Spain, where she was participating in an internship with a technology firm.

Pitt spokeswoman Cara Masset says the U.S. State Department notified the university of the death of Oeshae (oh-SHAY’) Morgan, who is from Washington, D.C.

Pitt officials have referred questions to the State Department, which has released no additional information.

Morgan was to have turned 21 on Sunday, but her family was notified of her death on Friday.

Morgan’s grandmother, Karen Williamson, tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette the family was told Morgan’s body was found in a courtyard near her residence and that her death appeared to be an accident.

Morgan had a double major in economics and political science and was working on a marketing internship for Wonnova, a Madrid firm.
