A body was found at the entrance of the The Vue on MacGregor around 7 a.m. Tuesday morning.

The woman, whose identity has not been released, was found near the entrance of the apartment on the 4600 block of South MacGregor, according to ABC13. The body was found on the first floor in an area that is still under construction where apartment’s gym and workout center is expected to be.

“It’s terrifying waking up to a dead body outside your window,” said finance junior Kim Kattapong. Kattapong lives on the second floor of The Vue, in an apartment complex directly adjacent to the scene.

Calls to The Vue have not yet been returned.

This incident is under investigation. Once we have information on what occurred, we will share it with our residents,” was posted on The Vue’s official Facebook page.

“It’s really unsettling to know that security didn’t catch it before the construction crew,” said Alexa Barrett, 19, a student at UH and resident of The Vue.

Students were cleared from the first floor by the Houston Police Department. HPD declined to comment.

ABC13 reported that the woman was found wearing only socks and earrings, with her purse nearby, and that there were no signs of foul play.
