MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - Police in Mitchell say a 19-year-old student has been found dead at a Dakota Wesleyan University dormitory.

Detective Lt. Don Everson says no “obvious” cause of death has been identified, and an autopsy will be conducted within the next 24 hours. Everson says police were called to Dayton Hall about 11 a.m. Wednesday.

Dakota Wesleyan spokeswoman Lori Essig identified the man as freshman athletic training student Beau Keeter. He was also a member of the school’s men’s basketball team.

The school has scheduled a prayer service for 8 p.m. and has made counseling services available to students.
