Mexican officials said Amherst College student Andrew Dorogi, who was found dead in Mexico City March 15, was electrocuted, ABC News reported Friday.
Dorogi, 21, a senior at the college, was found dead on railroad tracks near a train station in a Mexico City neighborhood. Power was cut to the tracks to allow emergency medical personnel access to the area, and Dorogi’s body was removed from the tracks. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Mexico City Attorney General’s Office said an autopsy determined Dorogi, a member of the Amherst football team, had died from electrocution, ABC reported.
On Monday, Amherst College President Carolyn “Biddy” Martin sent a campus-wide email stating that while the cause of Dorogi’s death was unknown at that point, he had not committed suicide.
