WTKR reports a 19-year-old Hampton University student reportedly committed suicide in the school’s on campus library.

Cullen Haviland, who hailed from Temecula, California, was found dead on Friday, March 27, 2015.

The site reports:

Haviland was a second year student who was actually classified as a senior because of his outstanding academic performance and credits he earned through advanced placement.

He was also involved with the National Society of Black Physics Students and the Society of Physics Students.

The school has provided grief counseling for students who may need it.

Officials say no foul play is expected at this time, but it is still early in the investigation.

    This was not a suicide. Hampton University would like for it seem that way so they don’t get sued. This was an accident due to faulty railing in the library. Don’t be fooled!

      Loose railing??? You obviously have not ever stepped a toe inside the library! So stop causing trouble & let this family grieve without your wild, false speculations! 1)This is a BRAND NEW library so NOTHING is loose anywhere 2). The stairwell’s bannister is almost 4.5 feet high so there is no way he could have accidentally fallen. He would have had to jump. Besides that, it is clear you do not know him or what demons he had. Suicide does not equal accident…or murder. White males in that age group are at the greatest risk. Plus, he was 3k miles from his family. Suicide is real. Read about it ignoramus!

    This is really sad. So many kids go through issues and the parents don’t have a clue about it until something like this happens. My prayers go out to this young man’s family.
