SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - An autopsy has been scheduled to learn what killed a 20-year-old University of Notre Dame student found dead in his dorm room.

University spokesman Paul Browne says Jake Scanlan of North Potomac, Maryland, was found unresponsive in bed in Siegfried Hall about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday. Students and a medical technician were unable to revive him.

Brown says there were no signs of trauma or indications of foul play.
