WSU student found dead in frat house

PULLMAN, Wash. - A Washington State University student was found dead inside his room at the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house early Monday morning.

Brock Lindberg, 21, was found unresponsive in the room. Paramedics administered CPR, but Lindberg was declared dead at the scene.

Pullman Police Commander Chris Tennant told KXLY4 News that it looked like Lindberg just "went to sleep."

The news of Lindberg's passing has upset the WSU community. Many people found out about the death on social media.

"Nobody wants to see this happen," said WSU senior Jake Newnom. "And obviously there are things we can do to prevent this."

Newnom is a member of Sigma Pi. He said he's confident that WSU will come together in the face of tragedy.

"I think the Greek community, as well as the WSU community, is always strong, we're diverse, we come together in times like these, especially when we need to," said Newnom.

After all, WSU is a family. And that's what families do.

"It's all about family and creating that bond and letting everyone know that they're there for them, whether they're having a bad day, good day. No matter what," said Newnom.

Police said the Whitman County Coroner's office will conduct an autopsy to determine how Lindberg died. Police don't suspect foul play.
