A freshman student in the Jacobs School of Music who played cello in the University Orchestra has been found dead in his room in Forest Quad. A memo sent to fellow-residents describes his death as suicide.



  • Bruce says:

    OK, you’ve reported it. Now it would be appropriate to leave it/ him/ his family & friends alone.

    • steven holloway says:

      Agreed. There was a time when even journalists abided by a convention not to report suicides of this sort. Suicide of major figures, as in the Peru news today, may be a different matter, but not cases such as this one. Deeply offensive and painful.

  • Sharon says:

    What a shame. May his family find peace
