Massachusetts Institute of Technology student, originally from Redwood Falls, Minn., was found dead around noon on Monday in his dorm room, said the Star Tribune.
Brian G. Anderson, 21 and a management major and wrestler, was found dead in the Next House dormitory, MIT News said.
The cause of death remains unknown but authorities have ruled out crime involvement and the school's chancellor also quickly dismissed the possibly that Anderson had killed himself, the Star Tribune said.
"In order to get complete answers, we must allow time for the authorities to conduct their investigation," Chancellor Eric Grimson said in MIT News. "I encourage everyone to refrain from speculation. At this early stage, there is no strong indication that Brian's death was the result of suicide."
Funeral services for Anderson will be held 11 a.m. Saturday at Grace Lutheran Church in Belview, Minn. He is survived by his parents, Gregory and Cecilia; and brothers Raymond and Thomas, the Star Tribune said.
