The Whatcom County medical examiner ruled out foul play in the man’s death, and university officials said they do not believe he was a current student.

Police said the man did not have identification on him when his body was found and his fingerprints have not turned up a match in police databases.

Anyone with information on the man is asked to call the Western Washington University police at 360-650-3555 and reference case number 20-0148.
