Days after a party, roommates found 20-year-old University of Southern California student Thu Yain Kyaw dead in his room. Kyaw, who went by "Roy," reportedly wasn't seen for a few days after a party at his home on W. 29th Street. His roommates found him dead in his room on Sunday.
Although an autopsy has not yet been performed, the Los Angeles Police Department is investigating the preliminary cause of Kyaw's death as "acute alcohol toxicity."
This death comes just a few weeks after the university experienced what it called "the worst weekend of the semester." During the weekend of Oct. 12, seven people had to be transported to the hospital via ambulance, and one female suffered an alcohol-related head injury after falling off a table at a fraternity party. Since then, USC have implemented a few sanctions on the school's fraternity "row" (Kyaw did not die at a fraternity party).
Kyaw was from Singapore and a student at USC's Marshall School of Business. USC Dean James G. Ellis wrote in a statement, "Roy was...an outstanding student who made a positive impact among his friends, fellow students and faculty."
