Joe Dado was found Monday evening at the bottom of a stairwell in the Hosler Building about 75 yards form the frat house. Dado's body was found by 2 maintenance workers on their way to fix a broken pipe.

"At this point, there's no reason to suspect foul play," University Police Director Steve Shelow said. "This appears to be an accidental fall, but our investigation will, of course, continue as we go over the evidence at the scene." (More from Pittsburgh Tribune-Review )
