A Southern California college student has been found dead at an off-campus home, which led to the suspension of his fraternity, according to reports.
Noah Domingo, 18, was discovered unresponsive in bed Saturday near University of California, Irvine, following a loud rager at the private residence, news station KABC reported.
A 911 call was placed around 9:40 a.m. reporting that the freshman was dead in a bedroom, officials said.
The coroner’s office said Domingo died around six hours before police responded to the residence. The cause of his death is under investigation.
Domingo was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, which was placed on suspension as the college reviews the incident.
School officials released a statement saying they would “closely examine the larger context in which this tragedy occurred and will be working with the Greek community to help ensure that they are engaging in behaviors and practices that are in alignment with university policies and their own values.”
The fraternity’s national offices released a statement saying they advised members “to fully cooperate with all investigative efforts.”
“We are heartbroken by the death of our UCI brother, Noah Domingo,” the statement obtained by KACB said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends, and we appreciate the support the university and its staff have provided to students in this difficult time.”
A GoFundMe page was created to raise money for Domingo’s funeral.
“He had such a fun, enthusiastic spirit, with an immense love of basketball and football, always a team player!” the page said. “He was a supportive, caring friend, brother, boyfriend, grandson, and son whom always wanted to make everyone laugh.”
