The young woman from Latvia was already a success. Santa Pumpura, 21, was on her way to a finance degree at Rutgers University’s School of Business in New Brunswick. She was known as "the thinker" among her group of American friends, because of her studiousness and intelligence. She spoke English, Russian, Latvian and German…Pumpura, a junior who lived off campus in Piscataway, was pronounced dead about an hour later at University Hospital in Newark. The friend, 23-year-old Halim Habib – a senior at Rutgers’ School of Environmental and Biological Sciences – remained at University Hospital this afternoon, Flynn said.
