COLUMBIA, Mo. -

University of Missouri police are investigating the death of an 18-year-old in an MU residence hall.

Around 9:07 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to the Pershing group of residence halls for a medical emergency.

They found an 18-year-old male unconscious and not breathing. He was taken to University Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The victim was identified as Gregory Holthaus of Highland, Ill.

He was a guest of one of the residents, according to officials.

Investigators are interviewing Holthaus' friends and gathering evidence associated with a death investigation, but police say there is no indication of foul play.

Residential Life and the university will be providing assistance, including counseling and support services.
