(WJBK) -

An 18-year-old freshman male was found dead in his dormitory room early Monday, the University of Michigan Police Department says. The department is still investigating the cause of death.

Diane Brown, a spokeswoman for the university's police department, says housing security officers found Thibault Marie-Augustus de Saint Phalle deceased in his bed while performing a well-being check, after he had reportedly not been seen over the weekend.

De Saint Phalle is from California, and was a student in the university's School of Music, Theatre and Dance (SMTD).

The medical examiner's officer will release an official cause of death after a toxicology report is conducted.
