WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WAVY/WRIC) — A death investigation is underway on the campus of the College of William & Mary.

An alert from the school says shortly before 8 p.m., a passerby discovered a man’s body in an outside area of the Dillard Complex building, located off of Ironbound Road.

The Dillard Complex is located about two miles from the college’s main campus.

There’s no indication the man is affiliated with the University, the alert said, though officials are still working to confirm that.

Police are still working to identify and determine the cause of death of the man, but are now saying that he appears to be in his 50s. They said in a release that they do not suspect foul play, but they are waiting for a final determination by the medical examiner.
