The death of a young man found in a San Jose State University parking garage on Wednesday is being investigated by the Santa Clara County medical examiner’s office as a suicide, a university spokeswoman said today. The university student, identified by the medical examiner as a 23-year-old Fremont resident, was found on the first floor of a campus parking structure on 10th Street at 7:15 a.m. Wednesday, university spokeswoman Pat Lopes Harris said. A police investigation revealed that the man fell from one of the upper floors of the garage to the bottom floor, Harris said. The structure has four or five levels and it is unknown which level the man fell from, she said. Police do not know how long the man was on the upper level of the structure before he fell, but the fatal fall happened at about 7:15 a.m., Harris said. No one reported witnessing the fall, she said. The man was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The county medical examiner has not yet released an official cause of death, but university police are investigating it as a suicide. Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is encouraged to call the San Jose State University Police Department at (408) 924-2222. Counseling services are available to students by calling the university’s counseling services department at (408) 924-5910.
