An Eastern Connecticut State University student was found dead in his vehicle on campus late Wednesday night.

Officials identified the student as Lee Barrett of Hamden. They say they found no sign of foul play in the death.

The medical examiner's office will determine the cause of death.

Earlier this week the body of a University of Connecticut student, Tianyin Shang, was found in a lake on campus. Her death has been ruled a suicide by the medical examiner.
