WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the death of a Purdue University student whose body was discovered during a fire drill.

The Tippecanoe County coroner says foul play is not suspected. The young man was found Tuesday night in a locked room at Hillenbrand Hall. Resident assistants were checking rooms to ensure students were participating in the fire drill.
