North Carolina college student found dead in dorm room

A North Carolina college student was found dead over the weekend in a campus residence hall — and now authorities are investigating the circumstances surrounding his death.

First-year North Carolina State University engineering student Adam Fawcett, 19, was found dead in his Wood Hall dorm room on the Raleigh campus, CBS 17 reported Tuesday.

NC State spokesperson Lauren Barker told the outlet the school was probing the case as an unintended death.

No further details were released about his cause of death.

Barker said that a drop-in counseling session was held Monday night for Fawcett’s acquaintances. She said similar sessions would continue in the coming days.

According to his LinkedIn, Fawcett was pursuing a B.S. in computer science after graduating from the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics last spring.

It is unclear when exactly Fawcett’s body was found, but a janaza prayer alert shared on Twitter Tuesday afternoon listed his date of death as Sunday, Jan. 22.

The announcement also said that a prayer service for Fawcett would be held at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Islamic Center of Raleigh.

Campus police did not immediately return The Post’s request for comment.
