It sounds like he was only recently dead, as he was described as unresponsive when found, not obviously deceased. So, where had he been for 9 or 10 days? I hope they can figure it out and make sure there was no foul play involved. It is always sad to see suicide as there probably was a way out of his situation, that would have allowed him to resume a happy and full life. Rest in peace! I hope you find the peace you could not find here on earth.

@Dean- Unfortunately, Caucasian college students have the highest suicide rate among male college students. He may have been contemplating during those 9 or 10 days. http://www.nabita.org/documents/NewDataonNatureofSuicidalCrisis.pdf

Oh, his poor parents.!! What they must have been going through.

He had been dead the whole time. "Unresponsive" is the politically correct way of saying dead.
