The student who died at a fraternity house near the University of Minnesota's St. Paul campus has been identified by St. Paul police.

Dylan Fulton, 20, was found unresponsive in the early hours of Wednesday at the Alpha Gamma Rho house on the 2000 block of Carter Ave.

Responders arriving at the scene pronounced him dead.

Police have said that Fulton was a member of the fraternity and was living in the house at the time.

According to his Facebook page, Fulton is a native of Miller, South Dakota, where he was a member of the high school rodeo team.

A fraternity website meanwhile states that he was pursuing a degree in animal science, with an emphasis on beef production.

An obituary states his funeral will be held at the Miller High School Armory this Saturday. A prayer service will be held Friday evening at the Miller Community Center.

St. Paul Police spokesman Steve Linders said alcohol may have been a factor in the death, but hazing and initiation is not suspected, nor is any other type of foul play.

People inside the house at the time of the victim's death were questioned at police headquarters and were cooperative with investigators.
