UMass Student Found Dead in Dorm Room

UMasssealAMHERST (WGGB) — A UMass Amherst spokesman confirmed that a student was found dead in a dorm room Saturday.

The spokesman says university police responded to a “wellness check” at 1 p.m. Saturday, to find 19-year-old Evan Jones of Milton dead in his Washington Tower dorm room, on the southwest residential area.

Police do not suspect any foul play and say that nothing appears to have gone wrong at the scene. They also do not suspect that the student took his or her own life. The student lived in a single dorm room and did not have roommates.

Police will conduct a standard autopsy.
