Easton PA July 27 2017 A man was found dead Wednesday morning in a dormitory at Lafayette College in Easton, authorities say.
The man was not a student, Northampton County Coroner Zachary Lysek said.
Based on an initial investigation, nothing appeared suspicious about the death and there is no threat to the community, Lysek said.
The man's cause and manner of death will be determined in an autopsy that had yet to be scheduled. Lysek did not immediately release the man's name, age and hometown.
Easton police Inspector Daniel Reagan said the College Hill probe involves city police, the college's department of public safety and the coroner's office.
"We take all death investigations seriously," he said. City police were brought in at the request of the college, Reagan said. The city's investigations truck was parked in a nearby lot with several other police vehicles.
People sitting in the Farinon College Center across the Quad from Kirby said they didn't know what was going on at the dorm. Workers to the front of the building said they didn't know anything was out of the ordinary until firetrucks arrived.
Campus tours appeared to continue and teenagers from an on-campus program occasionally walked past the yellow crime tape before joining larger groups on the Quad.
The college was expected to send a news release with more detail, Reagan said.
The investigation was continuing, he added before he walked with Lysek back into the red brick building.
