A Sigma Alpha Epsilon member was found dead Sunday afternoon at the Kansas University fraternity, 1301 West Campus Road.
Lawrence police identified the deceased KU student as Jason Christopher Wren, 19, of Littleton, Colo. Though the cause of death hasn’t been determined, foul play was not immediately suspected, said Capt. Ray Urbanek.
“There’s still a lot to do,” he said.
Police said they were called shortly after 2:30 p.m. to the fraternity house, where they found Wren unresponsive.
“He went to bed last night and he obviously didn’t wake up this morning,” said Urbanek.
Urbanek said an autopsy would likely be performed to determine the cause of death.
Fraternity members did not return calls for comment. An adult at the fraternity house, who identified himself only as a KU greek leader, said there were no chapter events going on at the house Saturday night.
Members of the fraternity met for a group meeting at the house shortly after 7 p.m. Sunday, the adult leader said.
KU spokeswoman Jill Jess sent an e-mailed statement Sunday night. “Counselors are being made available to the membership and others who knew the deceased,” she said. “Our hearts go out to family and friends on this sad day.”
