Weekend Death of UA-F Student May Be Alcohol-Related

OCTOBER 4, 2004 - Posted at 7:26 a.m. CDT

 

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - Authorities still have not released the name of a University of Arkansas student who died over the weekend.

Police say the death appears to be alcohol-related.

A call for emergency help was made Saturday morning.  The student was reported to have taken medicine containing codeine and drank beer.

The student was a fraternity member but the university said the death was not connected to the faternity "rush" period, when students work to become members.  The school says the student died at his private residence, not at a fraternity house.

The university left it to police to disclose the student's name.  Fayetteville police still have not identified him.

The university is making crisis counselors available to students who knew the victim.
