KENT -- A Kent State University spokesperson has confirmed that the body of a student was found in a residence hall on-campus Sunday evening.
Emily Vincent says the body was found just after 4:55 p.m. on the fourth floor of Leebrick Hall during a welfare check. Welfare checks are done at the request of family members when they have not heard from someone in a while.
The body has been taken by the Portage County Coroner. The Coroner's office says the victim is a man in his late 20's.
Chief Investigator for the Coroner's office, Tom Decker, says there's no visible cause of death. An autopsy will be performed Monday to determine the cause of death. Foul play is not suspected at this time.
Decker also says they have identified the man but will not release his name until family members can be notified.
University Police had no response as the investigation continues.
