The state’s medical examiner says the manner of 19-year-old Dylan Lyford’s death is pending further investigation. But Umaine officials have previously said alcohol may have been a factor.
Police were called to an apartment on Stillwater Avenue around 10:30 Sunday morning for a report of an unconscious man. Lyford, who lived on campus, was a first-year student studying chemical engineering. He was taken to a hospital in Bangor where he was pronounced dead. Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding Lyford’s death.
