Pathivada’s family reportedly alerted the police after she did not return home after work on May 12. According to reports, her family and friends tracked her phone in Oklahoma before reaching out to the police.

According to the 25-year-old’s public Facebook page, on which she has not been active for a while, she was employed at the Overland Park Regional Medical Centre in Kansas. An alumnus of the University of Kansas, her social media page features selfies and photos of herself with friends in traditional Indian clothing.

The McKinney Police Department told The Quint that after investigation, they found that Pathivada tragically took her own life, thus making the incident a suicide case. No further details have been disclosed yet.
