Police: Cold likely contributed to death of college student

February 03, 2019 - 5:58 AM

BURLINGTON, Vt. - The Burlington Police Department says sub-zero temperatures and inadequate clothing likely contributed to the death of a 19-year-old University of Vermont student found lying in a parking lot.

Police say the young man, whose name has not been released, was found just before 11 a.m. Saturday behind a Burlington business.

Emergency crews attempted to revive the student but were unsuccessful.

Police say it appears the student was walking through a parking lot during the early morning hours Saturday when he stopped by a fence.

The temperature at the time was between minus 1 and minus 4.

Police are continuing to investigate the teen's condition and whereabouts prior to his death, but there were no indications of foul play.
