Police Investigating Death of Penn State Senior
The State College Police Department is investigating the death of a Penn State senior who was set to graduate in less than two weeks, according to a release.
Police responded to a house on 119 Wren Alley at 10:03 a.m. this morning for a report of an unresponsive male. They found 22-year-old Darren Stafford, of Princeton Junction, New Jersey, in full cardiac arrest. Stafford was pronounced dead at the scene.
There was no indication of trauma or foul play and the incident is under investigation by the State College Police. Stafford majored in Business Marketing.
Our condolences go out to Stafford’s family and friends for their loss. We’ll update this post as more information becomes available.
Update: A previous version of this story identified Stafford as a brother of Pi Kappa Phi. He is a former member of the fraternity, but has not been associated for the last three semesters.
