TALLAHASSEE (WFLA) — Police are investigating the death of a 21-year-old man at a fraternity house about half a mile from Florida State University.
Officers responded to the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house Wednesday morning after a body was discovered. According to Cap News Services, the body was of 21-year-old Sam Stone who appeared to have fallen from the roof of the building.
“At this time, there’s no indication of foul play,” FSU Police Chief Terri Brown said outside the fraternity house.
Stone a recent graduate of FSU attended high school in Tampa and was set to be deployed to Afghanistan this coming October.
He would have turned 22 in two weeks.
”Obviously it’s been a terrible morning,” said Sigma Alpha Epsilon Vice President Colton Williams. “He was a charismatic leader. His whole aura was really involved around his ability to lead and get people to follow. He was just incredibly gifted with just so many traits that I think his family would be so proud of him for.”
University records show Sigma Alpha Epsilon was suspended just a month into last fall’s semester for alcohol violations. That suspension ended at the start of the spring semester.
According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Brown said she could not confirm whether the victim fell from the roof or not, but expects more information to be released later in the day.
