Bryan Baugh, sophomore international studies major, was found dead in his dorm room Thursday night.
Baugh was a member of the a cappella group Tech Notes, he also studied German. He was from Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania and worked at West End.
"He was a really great guy. He was super funny and he was really passionate about music. I am having a really hard time processing it” said Erin Sanchez, a fifth year Architecture major and fellow Tech Notes singer.
According to Virginia Tech Police, Baugh passed away Thursday night and there is no suspicion of foul play or intentional harm. At this time, the police cannot release any additional information regarding cause of death.
VT News reported that an RA checked his room after Baugh had not been seen for approximately 24 hours. He lived in the second floor of Newman Hall. Virginia Tech Police was notified at 5:25 p.m. for medical assistance and responded with the Virginia Tech Rescue Squad immediately.
There was no VT alert sent to students because there was no evidence that indicated that there was a confirmed, ongoing threat/danger to the community. However, VT News published a short press release on the Virginia Tech homepage later Thursday night.
