Carroll School Of Managment Sophomore Michael Gannon was found dead in his dorm on Saturday afternoon.
Boston College Public Affairs Director Jack Dunn said “The medical examiner has not found the cause of death.” However, police do not suspect foul play.
Dunn said police have not reported anything about the condition of Gannon’s Walsh Hall dorm room, where he was found. Dunn did rule out drinking as a factor.
Vice President of Student Affairs Patrick Rombalski asked the campus in an email to pray for Michael’s sister Michelle Gannon, a senior in the Carroll School, Michael’s many friends on campus, and Michael’s family in his hometown of Lake Forest, Illinois.
Gannon’s death comes in the wake of the mourning for Boston College student Franco Garcia, who disappeared in February and whose funeral was April 18th.
Rombalski encouraged the community to again band together in mutual support, and encouraged students to seek campus counseling and ministerial aid at 617-552-3144, available 24 hours.
