NBCUniversal, Inc.

A Stanford University student was found dead Friday morning at a fraternity house, the school said in a statement.

The university sent out an email notifying students about the death. The Stanford Daily reported that the person was a male sophomore and that the Palo Alto Fire Department found him in the Theta Delta Chi house.

The cause is under investigation.

This story has been updated to reflect that the student was found by the Palo Alto Fire Department, not the Palo Alto Police Department.
