Union Township — Authorities say alcohol is a factor in the death of a 23-year-old Central Michigan University student from Oakland County who died after being found unresponsive by his roommates.

WSGW-AM and the Morning Sun of Mount Pleasant report Jonathon Justice of Farmington Hills was found Saturday night in his Union Township apartment near the university’s Mount Pleasant campus. Police say he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say an autopsy Monday found no signs of physical trauma. Cause of death wasn’t released pending toxicology test results, which could take several weeks.

According to investigators, Justice was ill Saturday night and his roommates left a garbage can near where he was lying on a couch before leaving. A short time later, police say one of Justice’s roommates returned and found him unresponsive.
