University of Florida student Molly Ammon died in Pinellas County over the past week while students were on Spring Break. UF spokesman Steve Orlando says the university is always worried about students over spring break. Police are waiting for the results of a toxicology report to determine the case of death. Ammon was a freshman accounting major and a member of Delta Delta Delta sorority.
