Ann Arbor police Thursday morning said they were waiting for results from an autopsy on the 25-year-old University of Michigan medical student found dead Wednesday before releasing any additional information.
The Washtenaw County Medical Examiner was scheduled to perform an autopsy Thursday, Ann Arbor police Lt. Robert Pfannes said.
In the meantime, the man's death is still being investigated as "suspicious," Ann Arbor police said in a media release.
The man was found dead at a home in the 200 block of North Ingalls Street at a building identified as the Phi Rho Sigma fraternity, a co-educational society of U-M medical students.
Police said the 25-year-old medical student failed to arrive as scheduled for an assignment at the Veteran’s Hospital. An associate was sent to check on his whereabouts and called 911 after finding the man deceased, according to police.
Medical school officials also sent out an email to students and faculty notifying them of a student’s death Wednesday afternoon. A U-M crime alert was sent out just before 11 p.m. Wednesday about the incident.
Authorities are not yet releasing the man's name.
