Nonaffiliate Dies On Campus in Apparent Suicide

    A UCSD nonaffiliate died last week while sitting in a
    stopped vehicle in a Revelle College
    parking lot, an event police are calling an apparent suicide.

    The individual, a male whose name has not yet been released
    to the public, was discovered in a blue SUV at 12:49
    on April 17 in Lot 104, according to a
    police statement.

    Witnesses allegedly told police that the individual was
    playing loud music and had been revving his car engine for several minutes
    before anyone approached the vehicle.

    The morning following the incident, Revelle College Resident
    Dean Malik Ismail sent an e-mail to all Revelle residents notifying them of
    what had occurred.

    Additionally, the e-mail informed residents that they and
    any other students affected by the incident would be provided with the
    opportunity to speak with psychologists from the campus Psychology and
    Counseling Services Office that evening.

    “The counselors are always available for students,” Ismail
    said. “We wanted to provide this as an opportunity if there were concerns that
    students had and to provide an opportunity to have counselors here to listen
    and to offer any sort of counseling support.”
