No foul play in death in Amherst College dorm, officials say

Mary Carey, spokeswoman for the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office, said Thursday that the death was not suspicious and that it was not a student who died.

“It’s not suspicious, not foul play, not a student and not in public,” Carey said.

The body, reportedly of an Amherst College employee, was discovered in James Hall, a dormitory on the quadrangle.

College spokesman Caroline Hanna declined to comment, referring questions to the district attorney’s office.
