COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Authorities have identified a Texas A&M; University student who investigators believe died of a drug overdose after being found unresponsive at a fraternity house.

Anton Gridnev was found early Saturday during a party at the Sigma Nu fraternity. The 19-year-old, a member of the fraternity, was pronounced dead at a hospital.

College Station police said in a statement Monday Gridnev, who was from Frisco, Texas, has recently moved into the Sigma Nu home.

Investigators are still trying to determine what drug Gridnev ingested.

The results of an autopsy are still pending.



Police determined other drugs were in the house and four young men, ages 18 to 21, were arrested for possession. Three others were cited for having drug paraphernalia.

The fraternity’s national office says it’s helping authorities with the investigation.
