Vincennes University has released the name of a student found dead Thursday by his mother.

30-year-old Joshua Litherland was pronounced dead around 12:30 p.m. The coroner says Joshua's mother, who works at Clark Residence Hall, found him unresponsive in his room.

Vincennes University President Dick Helton sent out a statement. He says "Joshua was a good student and was well liked by his many friends. The VU community is saddened by his loss."

He was an electronics technology major and had registered for classes this Fall. An autopsy has been performed, and the results will be released in a few weeks.
