No foul play is suspected in the deaths of two Southern Tier students who died in separate incidents in recent days, authorities said Monday.
The body of St. Bonaventure University sophomore Tyler S. Davis was found near the west entrance to the campus Sunday afternoon after he was reported missing. He had last been seen alive early Saturday leaving a party on East Union Street in Allegany.
An autopsy was scheduled to be conducted by the Erie County Medical Examiner’s Office in Buffalo, but an exact cause of death is not expected to be determined until toxicology tests are completed, and that could take weeks, according to Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Capt. Robert Buchhardt.
Davis, a history major from Rochester, was living in Devereux Hall.
In the other case, the body of an 18-year-old Alfred State College student was found Friday in the Town of Almond by state and local law enforcement officers.
Eric Michael Green, the son of Alfred State College Distinguished Teaching Professor Michelle Green, was last seen alive when he left the Student Leadership Center on campus at about 6 p.m. Nov. 18.
He had been reported missing Wednesday.
Although no foul play is suspected, authorities would not discuss the cause of death.
He was enrolled in the college’s computer information systems program and lived on campus.
Valerie Nixon, Alfred State’s interim president, issued a statement Friday sending condolences to the family:
“We would like to thank all of those who expressed concerns since the moment Eric was reported missing. Eric and the Green family have been part of our community for many years, and we mourn his loss.”
