Student who fell from UD dorm committed suicide

Published:

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- A two-month investigation has determined that a University of Dayton freshman who fell from a six-story dormitory window last month committed suicide.

Parents of 18-year-old Larry Cook had previously disputed that he had killed himself. But The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/10qvnlb ) reports that a probe concluded that Cook was under severe stress and had marijuana in his system when he jumped from the dorm window April 2.

Dayton police declined to discuss the details of the investigation until they could brief university officials and the teen's parents.

Later in April, a 19-year-old freshman survived a fall from the sixth floor of another university dorm. His family suspects illegal drugs were involved.
