STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) – Authorities are awaiting toxicology results to try to determine the cause of death for a Penn State University student from North Carolina.
The university says 19-year-old William Denton was found dead in his dorm room on Monday night after his family in Raleigh, North Carolina, had requested a welfare check.
Centre County Coroner Scott Sayers tells the Centre Daily Times Denton likely died on Sunday.
The sophomore was studying health policy and administration and was a member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity.
Penn State’s winter semester began on Monday.
