According to the email, foul play is not suspected, and an investigation into the cause of death is underway.

The email did not identify the student, but said that the family has been notified. 

“Students impacted by this death are being offered counseling and support during this difficult time,” the email said. “…Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of this student.”
