Misrach offered to fill in for one of our members who had previously signed up for duty on Thursday night because they couldn’t make it to the event. Misrach and the other members on duty left for the evening after the club closed and all of the duty obligations had been completed, the dining club stated in a statement.
To search the vast grounds of the school, authorities used boats and drones.
Ewunetie, a junior at the prestigious institution, was last saw cleaning her teeth in Scully Hall in the early hours of the morning. Her brother claimed that before becoming quiet, her phone had beeped close to an off-campus housing development, roughly a 30-minute walk from her dorm.

Police searched the housing complex three times with no success, and school administrators had issued many notifications pleading for anybody with information to come forward.
When Ewunetie’s family heard she had missed an appointment for her US citizenship application, they notified the authorities on Saturday. Ewunetie’s family is from Ethiopia initially, but they currently reside in Ohio.
Her brother Universe Ewunetie recently remarked, “She is the pearl of the house, their only daughter and the youngest.” She is cherished a lot.
On Thursday, just hours before authorities discovered her dead, her distraught brother appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and begged for her to come back.
Time is of the essence, therefore we just want the legislation to be quicker, he added. “We will accept whatever assistance we can get.”
He had remarked that it was odd that his sister’s phone had rung when she was off-campus, describing the lush Ivy-League campus as “quite isolated.” That her phone would be off campus is therefore quite strange. He remarked, “It’s like everything is on campus.
According to Ewunetie’s LinkedIn page, she is a sociology student who has a certificate in “Applications of Computing.” She stated in her profile that she hoped to contribute to the business sector through creative problem-solving and data analysis abilities that would “continue to expand as I pursue my studies at Princeton.”
The top student worked as a summer business analyst intern at McKinsey & Company’s Ohio branch for the previous two summers. In the fall of 2020, she enrolled at Princeton, and her graduation date was 2024.
She participated in several organizations on campus, including the Princeton Ethiopian and Eritrean Student Association, the Pre-College Research Institute, and a group called Matriculate. According to its website, Matriculate pairs students with “low-income, high-achieving high schoolers to serve as virtual advisers for them through the college application process.”
