CHICAGO (CBS) -- The University of Chicago says foul play is not suspected in the death of a third-year student from Pittsburgh whose body was found yesterday afternoon.

It was about 4:15 in the afternoon when the decomposed body of 20-year-old Nicholas Barnes was found in his dorm room at International House – on the University of Chicago campus.

“Our thoughts are with Nicholas’ family and friends, the Booth House community, residents and staff of I-House, and all who are touched by this loss. Nicholas was an excellent student, admired by faculty and peers alike,” said Karen Warren Coleman, Vice President for Campus Life and Student Services in a statement.

The cause of death has not been determined. The Cook County Medical Examiner says autopsy results are pending toxicology.
