Man Found Dead In State College Megabus Bathroom

A 54-year-old Philadelphia man was found dead in the bathroom of a Megabus Thursday afternoon in State College.

The bus was traveling from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh, and stopped at Walmart in State College before 1 p.m. Passengers then complained that they needed to use the restroom, and asked bus driver Anthony Savage Sr. open the bathroom door.

“I turned the lock on the outside, I hit the handle down,” Savage told the Centre Daily Times. “As soon as I hit the handle down the door busted open and the guy fell out, right at my feet. He still had the syringe in his arm.”

The man reportedly entered the bathroom between stops in Harrisburg and Mifflintown.

Sgt. Sean Albright told the Daily Collegian that he was at the scene when the man was pronounced dead. He explained that detectives found no signs of foul play, but the police department is waiting for autopsy results to determine the man’s cause of death.

The State College Police Department indicated that they will release the man’s name after his family is notified.
