Dubiski’s family and friends mourned their loss and remembered her as they set up a floral memorial at NRG Park, according to our National Content Desk.

“We had a mass casualty event here at Astroworld,” Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña said at a news conference on Friday night.

Officials are still unclear about what happened at the festival but are considering this a homicide investigation.

“This is now a criminal investigation that’s going to involve our homicide division as well as narcotics, and we’re going to get down to the bottom of it,” Houston Chief of Police Troy Finner confirmed during a Saturday news conference.

Late Monday afternoon, FOX13 learned Dubiski was apart of the ADPI sorority at Ole Miss. They declined to comment on her death, but told us they appreciate the prayers and condolences.
