BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) _ The McLean County coroner says an Illinois State University student found dead in his dorm room died from hanging.

Coroner Seth Reynolds on Monday identified the student as Christopher G. Predmore of Bartonville. However Reynolds didn’t make a ruling on whether Predmore’s death was a suicide. The coroner says that won’t be done until after toxicology results.

Campus police found Predmore late Saturday afternoon in his room at the campus’ Haynie Hall. Family members had requested a check on his well-being. An autopsy was done Monday morning.

Authorities say there was no sign of foul play. Predmore’s age was not released. ISU police and the coroner’s office continue to investigate the death.
