LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A University of Kentucky student died Monday night after being found unresponsive at a fraternity house.
The Fayette County Coroner ruled the death accidental and identified the student as Thomas "Lofton" Hazelwood, 18, of Henderson, Kentucky. The coroner said the cause of death is suspected alcohol toxicity.
University spokesman Jay Blanton said UK Police officers were called to the Farmhouse Fraternity around 6:22 p.m. Monday on a report of an unresponsive person.
"Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful and he was pronounced as deceased early yesterday evening. Foul play is not suspected, but police are investigating the circumstances of his death," Blanton said in a statement. "The thoughts of the entire UK community are with his family and all those who knew the student at this time."
UK said Hazelwood was a freshman majoring in Agricultural Economics. University officials are offering support services to members of the fraternity as well as the student's family and classmates.
"We are saddened to share the passing of a University of Kentucky new member of Farmhouse fraternity," fraternity CEO Christian Wiggins said. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, chapter members and entire community. We have encouraged all members to cooperate with the investigation. We will provide additional information as it becomes available."
