Death at the Student Apartments

Boca Raton, FL – A former FAU student died Tuesday morning in an on-campus student apartment, FAU Police say.

Police aren’t releasing the name or any details, but student interviews in Building 60 of the University Village Apartments say the white man – who lives off campus – died in Room 234 after a night of drinking.

The body was found in the apartment of sophomore Bailey Mcallister. According to friends of Mcallister, he died in her room, in her bed, before 1 p.m. Tuesday.

“The guy was in her room,” says Mcallister’s friend, Scott Thomas, a junior who also lives on campus. “She couldn’t wake him up this morning. She said she was pushing him and stuff, but he just wouldn’t wake up.”

Two residents, who asked to remain anonymous, say the former student spent the night “drinking, taking shots and crunching roxies and shooting them.”

FAU released a statement to the school’s student newspaper, the University Press, at 5 p.m. stating FAU Police received a report of an “unconscious non-student visitor” during “the afternoon hours of Tuesday, Nov. 25.”

At this time, FAU Police are categorizing the incident as an “unattended death” and FAU Police Maj. Sean Brammer says there are “no obvious signs of foul play.”

Just before 4 p.m., the crime unit cleared students from the area so the medical examiner, in a white Chrysler Plymouth minivan, could remove the body from the apartment.

After the body was removed, FAU’s Housing Department replaced the mattress the body was found on.

FAU Police at the scene refused to comment.
