University spokesman Matt Flores confirmed the death of 20-year-old Matthew Ellis, a business administration sophomore from Humble, but could not provide any other details.

San Marcos authorities would not provide any more information either, but said additional details would be available later on Tuesday.

The University Star, Texas State’s student newspaper, said Ellis was a new member of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity, and that he died in his sleep on Sunday after his fraternity’s initiation.
