WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University police are investigating the death of a 21-year-old student whose body was found Thursday in his West Lafayette apartment.

Purdue Police Chief John Cox says the body of Aaron Bulger of Mishawaka was found in his apartment four days before the start of fall classes.

Cox says Bulger, who was a senior in the College of Agriculture, was due to move into a fraternity house this week.

He tells the Journal & Courier that an autopsy was scheduled for today on Bulger’s body to determine his cause of death. Toxicology tests are pending.

Other tenants told police there has been a party in the building the night before Bulger’s body was found by a woman who was subleasing her apartment to the student.
