WILLISTON — Local police and state investigators are looking into the circumstances surrounding a body found at Williston State College on Tuesday morning.
Officers found a man in his late 20s, who was confirmed dead on site by paramedics, in a car in a campus parking lot about 11:30 a.m.
The man’s name is not yet being released, although police said he was not a student at the college.
The body showed no visible signs of trauma, and the state medical examiner will make a determination on how the man died after an autopsy, Capt. Amy Nickoloff of the Williston Police Department said.
No one has been arrested, and it’s not clear whether police are looking for a suspect.
The body was in the passenger seat of a car that appeared to have driven in quickly to a campus parking lot..
“The vehicle’s door was open, and the driver’s side window was down. It wasn’t even in a parking space,” student Joe Rogers said. “Apparently this happened right as we were getting out of class.”
Williston police are working with the Bureau of Criminal Investigation, the Highway Patrol, Northwest Narcotics Task Force and the Williams County Sheriff’s Office on the case.
