A Stanford University student was found dead inside of the Theta Delta Chi fraternity house last which has sparked an investigation into the cause of death. While an investigation is underway, there was no foul play involved, according to the Stanford Daily.
The sophomore student was found unresponsive at the home before being pronounced dead at approximately 10:21 a.m. on Friday, January 17. His name has not yet been released.
“We have been in touch with the student’s family,” Susie Brubaker-Cole, Stanford’s vice provost, wrote in an email to the campus community. “While we are working to understand the family’s wishes, we are not in a position to share the student’s name.
“This is very difficult news for any family to bear. Our university community grieves with them.”
