Deceased student indentified

August 1, 2014

Mississippi State University officials have identified a student who was found dead in an apartment Thursday afternoon as 21-year-old Andrew William Bollacker.
Bollacker was a junior accounting major from Senatobia.
Oktibbeha County Sheriff's Department investigators found Bollacker's body in a second-story unit at 21 Apartments on Oktoc Road after responding to a call at 4:30 p.m. Thursday. OCSD Commander Brett Watson said investigators didn't suspect foul play in Bollacker's death.
Mississippi State University Chief Communications Officer Sid Salter said the university's response was limited by Bollacker's death occurring off-campus and through its handling by local law enforcement. However, Salter said the university mourned Bollacker's loss.
"Whenever we lose one of our students to illness or accident, it's a tragedy and the university community is saddened today over this fine student's passing," Salter said. "We extend our sympathies to his family and friends."
Oktibbeha County Coroner Michael Hunt said Friday Bollacker appeared to have died from natural causes and his body had been sent to the Mississippi Crime Lab in Jackson for an autopsy. Hunt said the autopsy was scheduled for Friday.
Investigators are continuing to look into the matter as they await autopsy results.
