Death of Southeast Student Leaves Doctors, Family Baffled

MAY 4, 2006 - Posted at 2:10 p.m. CST

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A 23-year-old Southeast Missouri State graduate student is dead from a fast-acting yet baffling infection.

Angela Hotop's sudden death leaves friends and family struggling for answers.  The resident of Perryville died Tuesday at Saint Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau. 

Hotop was admitted to the hospital Saturday evening after a day of fever, diarrhea and vomiting.  By Sunday evening she was unconscious.  Doctors concluded she had an infection in her bloodstream, but a battery of tests didn't turn up the cause. 

Hotop was valedictorian in 2000 at her high school and graduated from Southeast with a 4.0 grade point average.  She was working on her master's in business administration.
