Man dies in fraternity house near UC Berkeley

A 20-year-old man has died at a fraternity house near the University of California Berkeley campus.

Lt. Ed Spiller says police and paramedics responded to reports of the unresponsive man at the home of the Zeta Psi fraternity on Sunday.

The man was declared dead at the scene, and his body was taken to the Alameda County Coroner’s office for an autopsy.

The man’s name has not been released, but Spiller says he was not a UC Berkeley student.

He said police classified the death as suspicious to call on homicide detectives to assist in the investigation.

Spiller said a party was held at the fraternity house Saturday night, and that police haven’t ruled out alcohol or drugs as possible factors in the man’s death.
