COLUMBIA — An 18-year-old man was pronounced dead Sunday morning after being found unconscious in an MU residence hall.
According to an MU Police Department news release, MU police officers found Gregory Gerard Holthaus of Highland, Ill., unconscious and not breathing shortly after 9 a.m. Paramedics started performing life-saving procedures and transported him to University Hospital, where he was declared dead.
Frankie Minor, director of MU's Department of Residential Life, said he believed it was Holthaus' friends who called emergency services.
*Holthaus was found in Dogwood Hall, a residence hall near the MU Student Recreation Complex, according to Minor. He was a guest of one of the residents in the building and was not an MU student.
The official cause of death has not yet been released, but there is no indication of foul play, according to the release. MU police Capt. Brian Weimer said he could not specify whether there were any signs of life when police arrived and said that more information would be released Monday.
Residential Life staff will be providing counseling and other support services to those impacted by the death, according to Minor.
