A 19-year-old CSU student was found dead Friday afternoon by a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, officials said Monday.

The young man was found on the ground just east of 914 W. Lake St. in the forested area next to Summit Hall, an investigator from the Larimer County Coroner’s Office said.

His approximate time of death was “late a.m. on Friday,” Dianne Fairman, chief deputy coroner and investigator on the case said.

It will “take days to weeks” to get the toxicology report back she said, adding that time of return depends on what they find.

When asked if the rate of suicides increases during Finals Week, Fairman said, “You know, I’d have to go back and look (at the data) but I don’t think there is any correlation — I really don’t.”
