Robert Nason, a 21 year-old Arts and Science student, was found dead in a car outside his Division St. home on Tuesday afternoon.

University Chaplain, Brian Yealland said the cause of death hasn’t been announced.

“It’s a matter of speculation at this point,” he said, adding that the University is working to support Nason’s family and friends.

“The family have arrived,” he said. “Most of our efforts are towards the family and his housemates at the Division St. home. I’ve been over there most of the afternoon.”

Kingston Police Staff Sergeant Alex Forsyth said police won’t release any more information tonight.

“I can verify there is an autopsy to be performed,” Forsyth said.
