Tragic: body found in Akron football stadium

There’s some very sad and sobering news coming out of the University of Akron that undoubtedly placed a huge cloud over the school.

Multiple media outlets reported that a body of someone who has apparently committed suicide was found inside InfoCision Stadium at the University of Akron yesterday morning. An official for the university confirmed the presence of the dead body and the conclusion of a police investigation, but other details have been omitted. Earlier reports stated that the body was that of a ROTC student at the university.

Akron was scheduled to play Ohio at 3 p.m. ET. and the game continued as scheduled despite earlier rumors that it would be delayed. Ohio would go on to win 37-20.

This is obviously crushing news, and our sincerest thoughts and prayers to go the family and friends of the victim. We’ll have more on this as it develops.
