      Based on preliminary autopsy results, authorities believe 18-year-old Brenda Dominguez died in an apparent suicide.

      Construction workers found the Edinburg North High School student TMs body outside the UTPA Science Building early Monday morning.

      The building was reopened for students and staff on Wednesday.

      The candlelight vigil for Dominguez is planned for 6 p.m. Wednesday in the Student Union Commons.

      Funeral arrangements for Dominguez have not been made public.
