Missing Texas Tech freshman found dead in Wal-Mart parking lot

Lubbock TX Dec 14 2016 
A Texas Tech freshman from McKinney was found dead Saturday night in a Wal-Mart parking lot.
The student, identified as 18-year-old Grant Kleman, was reported missing Friday after family members said they had not heard from him in several days, according to the Lubbock Avalanche Journal.
A campus police officer searched Kleman's room on campus but did not find him, KCBD-TV reported.
Posts circulated on social media showed pictures of Kleman and his silver and black Ford truck. He was last heard from at 8 p.m. Wednesday, according to one flier.
On Saturday, a family member received a call after Kleman's truck was spotted at the Wal-Mart on South Loop 289. Police were dispatched and found the teen unresponsive in his truck, the Avalanche Journal reported.
There were no obvious signs of foul play, police said.
"The Texas Tech University community extends its deepest sympathies and condolences to the family and friends of Grant Kleman during this difficult time," the university said in a statement.
The flag at Texas Tech where Kleman was a student at the Jerry S. Rawls College of Business Administration will be lowered in his memory Wednesday, the Daily Toreador reported.
Kleman attended the McKinney Christian Academy. In December 2015, the school congratulated Kleman on achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, according to a Facebook post.

A GoFundMe account was created to raise money for a donation to a McKinney church in Kleman's memory.
