ATHENS, Ohio (AP) – Authorities are investigating the death of a 23-year-old man who apparently fell and hit his head near the campus of Ohio University.

Athens police said William Patrick Thomas fell at about 1:15 a.m. Sunday and was found in the stairwell of a restaurant on North Court Street. A university official said Thomas, of the Columbus suburb of Gahanna, was not a student at the southeastern Ohio school.

Thomas was pronounced dead at a hospital. Foul play is not suspected but police are still investigating.
