Body found on Georgia Gwinnett campus believed to be suicide

Investigators believe a Georgia Gwinnett College student whose body was found on campus Friday committed suicide.

An autopsy is scheduled for Saturday to confirm whether the 20-year-old student took his own life, said Sherry Lang, spokeswoman for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation which is handling the case.

“We’re pretty sure that it is,” she said.

Friends began searching for the student Thursday night after receiving a “troubling text” from him, Lang said.

Campus police found the body by the soccer field Friday morning, said Lang, who declined to divulge more details until after the autopsy.
