Police are investigating after a Kent State student was found dead in his dorm room.

26-year-old James Barnes of Midland, PA was found in his room after his family contacted police to do a welfare check.

Barnes was discovered Sunday afternoon around 5PM on the fourth floor of Leebrick Hall – which houses freshmen and upperclassmen.

The building is located in the Tri-Towers area, on the eastern edge of the KSU campus.

There were no obvious signs of foul play. An autopsy will be performed today.
