Collegian Report: Student found dead in dorm room
A student was found dead in his Eastview Halls dorm room Monday night, according to a report from The Daily Collegian.
William Denton, 19, was found alone in Miller Hall, which was confirmed by the Centre County Coroner Scott Sayers to the Collegian.
According to the report, Denton’s family called police after a concern for his welfare after not hearing from him. “He probably died Sunday evening at this point, but he was found last night,” Sayers told the Collegian.
The report also said that the cause of the death is unknown and the cause will most likely not be determined for four to six weeks. In addition, the report says that the incident coincides with a report on the Penn State Police log, including the offense of an Unknown Drug/Possession of Paraphernalia/Health and Safety/RFA – Request for Assistance.
Denton was an undergraduate student studying Health Policy and Administration.
