Kent State Student Found Dead

A Kent State University student has been found dead in his dorm room. School officials say a family member called the school yesterday saying they hadn't heard from the student for a while. His body was found on the fourth floor of Leebrick Hall during a check on his welfare. The death is under investigation, but officials say foul play is not suspected. The Portage County Coroner's office says the victim was in his late 20's. His name was not released. WKYC-TV reports an autopsy will be performed today.
