The Pi Beta Phi sorority has identified a UCLA student whose body was found Monday inside a burning apartment near the Westwood campus as Andrea “Andy” DelVesco.
The sorority says it is mourning the “loss of their sister,” DelVesco, who was a member of the organization’s UCLA chapter.
“Andy had a contagious spirit and was a fearless giver,” Pi Beta Phi Chapter President Jacquie Medeiros said in a statement. “Andy was a friend to every person she met. She was always inclusive and there for everyone. More than anything, Andy wanted us to be ourselves … and most of all to never ever give up.”
Although the sorority released DelVesco’s name, L.A. County coroner’s officials have not identified her, saying her body was badly burned and that it could take some time before her name would be released.
