ST. PAUL — A 22-year-old junior from Nebraska has been found dead in his dorm room at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. No foul play is suspected.

University officials say Mark Langdon of Omaha was found in his room Friday afternoon. University spokesman Jim Winterer said he was found after friends asked public-safety officials to check on him.

Authorities don’t suspect foul play, but Winterer said the cause of death won’t be known until after an autopsy.
