MT. PLEASANT, Mich. – The Central Michigan University student found dead over the weekend has been identified, and authorities say alcohol may have played a role in his death.

Radio station WSGW-AM and the Morning Sun of Mount Pleasant report Jonathon Ray Justice, 23, was found unresponsive in his apartment at The Deerfield Village complex Saturday night.  He was found by his roommates and was pronounced dead at the scene by authorities.  Justice was from Farmington Hills.

Investigators say Justice was ill on Saturday night and his roommates left a trash can near where he was lying on a coach before they left. One of his roommates returned later and found him unresponsive.

Michigan State Police say that there are no obvious signs of physical trauma and the investigation is now relying on toxicology results to determine the cause of Justice’s death.
